My Google Plus eDiscovery and eDisclosure Posts to 31 March

Here is another of of the periodic lists of the short posts about eDisclosure and eDiscovery which go on my Google Plus page. This is in part a place to put short posts which link to things which might otherwise be missed, each with a short comment from me.

There is a secondary purpose: whilst each such article and link must have its own value, they also serve a valuable SEO (Search Engine Optimisation) purpose. Links from there back to here reinforce the SEO of this Blog. Links from here – by which I mean the entries on these occasional index pages – are ranking high in Google searches after a day or two.

I have been playing catch-up after a bad (or good depending on your viewpoint) run of videos and webinars which means that my formal writing schedule has slipped a bit and that I have a large stockpile of interesting links. The list below is a selection of things which came my way in the last week.

View from the Gherkin

One of my outings was an early morning visit to the Gherkin, or 30 St Mary Axe to give it its proper name, to do a video interview – more on that in due course.

It was not a great morning for photographs, with fairly bright sun and a deep enough haze to remove definition of anything more than 500 yards away. It was an interesting enough view, however.

London from the Gherkin

Bigger version

The tower all but lost in the haze at upper left is at the eastern end of the Houses of Parliament – known as Big Ben to those unaware that that is actually the name of the bell inside it. There is a proposal afoot to rename it the Elizabeth Tower to mark the Queen’s 60 years on the throne.

The big wheel, also barely visible, is the London Eye on the South Bank, just east of  the south end of Westminster Bridge.

The elegant footbridge closest to the camera is the Millennium Bridge. Next up is Cannon Street railway bridge, obscuring Blackfriars Bridge behind it. The last visible bridge is Waterloo Bridge.

The steeple in the centre foreground is at the back of the Royal Exchange. The building beyond and to the right of the Royal Exchange with the columns and pediment and the deep courtyard is the Bank of England. Wren’s churches are scattered about.

Most of the modern building is dull and unimaginative viewed from here, the product of a planning system which encourages mediocrity. The interesting, tall new buildings are out of this picture – including the one from which it was taken.
