Our first episode is “eDiscovery: The Challenges of Social Media (and Other Ephemeral Data Types)”.  I asked our guests—Jennifer Joyce and the Hon. John M. Facciola (Ret.)—to “recommend an article, book, blog, website, talk, or any other resource” for our listeners.  Jennifer made this recommendation:


“The Sedona conference recently published a commentary on ephemeral messaging that’s been out for public comment for a few months now and I think the team is getting ready to release that.  I was a member of that drafting committee and it does talk about a lot of what we discussed today, certain guidelines around use of outlines of potential business risks as well as benefits and sort of the tensions that exist within this space.  I think it’s a great way to learn a little bit more about this area.  I think there’s some great webinars and other types of virtual events that are going on right now and obviously, those are great for a lot of reasons, to be able to watch a pre-recorded session.  EY is putting out a legal compliance and technology series, as well as several law firms and other types of practitioners that really talk about what we’re talking about today, law, technology, and how it’s all coming together.”


Judge Facciola made this recommendation:


“I agree that Sedona is unique in what it does and that is a worthwhile place to start.  There are several excellent blogs out there, which are run by lawyers.  There are magazines such as Law and Technology.  There are ways to use Lexis, Westlaw, and Bloomberg to tag stuff, new cases that are coming out that will bring to your attention.  That’s also true of Casetext, which I think is free for most people.  I think you have to do some digging, but once you do even a minor amount of digging, you’ll be almost overwhelmed how much there is and then you become selective of it.  By the way, I don’t consider this, you know, hard duty or torture.  I really enjoy reading in this area.   Whether it is, I guess, show what a nerd I am, my favorite magazine is the Massachusetts Institute of Technology Tech Review and I look forward to it coming.  Even I can understand some of it.”
