Recent posts on Google+ on eDiscovery and other legal subjects

Being away, and with only random access to the Internet, focuses one’s mind on the most efficient way of capturing interesting articles as Twitter (my main source) dishes them up. Whatever its other virtues, Twitter is no good as an archive, since tweets disappear from sight very quickly. I usually bung them into Evernote (an easy, two-click process) but have recently started putting more of them into Google Plus (which I am finding increasingly useful), with or without much in the way of commentary, and so sharing them instead of merely adding to my own information stock.

There were many articles of interest whilst I was away. Many had nothing to do with eDiscovery but relate either to the US coverage of the Olympics or to the peculiar range of English legal curiosities which came up whilst I was away – I have written about these in my article Manslaughter (not), brand protection, Twitter censorship and crass Olympic coverage.

The Google Plus links work best, in indexing terms, if I cross-link to them from elsewhere. I do this in batches from Twitter with every few Google Plus posts and, as regular readers know, also list them here and on my website to make a running archive of them for future searchers to find. Although this involves a two-hop process for users (to my post and thence to its subject) the alternative, in many cases, is that the source article will simply disappear from view.

I have started trying to capture the dates of webinars and other events organised by those who sponsor the eDisclosure Information Project as well as articles. If I miss an event, it is either because I did not find out about it until too late or because I was away.

Recent posts include those listed below. There are others in the pile, but it is not necessarily helpful to list too many at once, so I will stop here for now.
