When I lecture about social media to legal professionals, many of them are mystified by Twitter and any application it could have to their professional lives. Today, I'm going to give you an example of how Twitter broadens my horizons every day. Bob Ambrogi (Twitter stream is @bobambrogi) tweeted the link to this post at Catalyst E-Discovery Blog, featuring a "video dramatically depicting the explosion in e-discovery and electronic information."
Not only is the video extremely interesting, it plainly illustrates that if e-Discovery hasn't come to a law firm near you, it's coming soon. It's also pretty clear that statistically, we miss a lot of electronically stored information (ESI) in traditional discovery searches. If you aren't even familiar with the most basic facts about e-Discovery, subscribing to blogs like Catalyst E-Discovery Blog can serve as a free primer (just click that orange RSS button right in the top right hand corner of the blog and drop that subscription right into your RSS feed reader). Reading the posts is a great way to get ready for that day you do have to deal with it, especially if you work in litigation.
