eDiscovery Trends: Nominate Your Favorite Blog by Tomorrow!
September 06, 2012
With back to back weeks of political party conventions leading up to the elections in November, nominations are in the forefront of the minds of many Americans these days (at least those not watching the Giants and Cowboys kicking off the NFL season!). It’s an important time for our country. While not quite on a par with the presidential nomination, ABA Journal is currently asking for nominations for the best 100 legal blawgs, er, blogs.
On their Blawg 100 Amici page, you can complete the form to identify yourself, your company or law school, your city and email address, the URL of the blog you wish to nominate and a brief (up to 500 characters) description as to why you’re a fan of the “blawg”. You’re also asked whether you know the “blawgger” personally (and admonished to “be honest”), whether there are any specific practice areas you’d like to see represented in the “Blawg 100” and whether ABA Journal can use your name and comment in their coverage. You can nominate more than one “blawg”.
ABA Journal notes that they discourage submissions from:
- “Blawggers” who nominate their own “blawgs” or “blawgs” to which they have previously contributed posts.
- Wives and husbands who nominate their spouses’ “blawgs”.
- Employees of law firms who nominate “blawgs” written by their co-workers.
- Public relations professionals in the employ of lawyers or law firms who nominate their clients’ “blawgs”.
- Pairs of “blawggers” who have clearly entered into a gentlemen’s agreement to nominate each other.
Now, you’re probably expecting a pitch to nominate our blog, eDiscoveryDaily, on the page. Certainly, if you would like to do so, we won’t stop you! ;-)
However, we’ll take this opportunity to recognize several of the excellent blogs out there that cover various eDiscovery topics. Here are some of the best (in no particular order):
- Discovery Resources
- Electronic Discovery Law
- e-discovery 2.0
- EDD Update
- eDiscovery Times
- e-Discovery Team®
- edd blog online
- Ride the Lightning
- e-Discovery Insights
- Bow Tie Law’s Blog
- The Posse List
- Next Generation eDiscovery Law and Tech Blog
- E-Discovery Beat
- Applied Discovery
- Ball in Your Court
If I missed any eDiscovery blogs out there, I apologize (I’m somewhat distracted, Michael Boley just picked off Romo in the Giants/Cowboys game). For compilations of eDiscovery news and analysis, I’d also like to recognize Law Technology News, PinHawk Law Technology Daily Digest and Unfiltered Orange as excellent sources for eDiscovery information.
Our hats are off to all of those who provide eDiscovery news and analysis to the industry! If you would like to nominate any of the blogs (including, of course, eDiscoveryDaily), click here. Deadline is tomorrow, September 7.
