Two new frequent blogs to be started
I plan to open two new blogs in the near future.
So far, the blogs (and my permanent websites) have tended to be static, and I have tried to organize all of the material in a quasi-networked fashion (rather like a network oriented database). What I constantly find is that I am hitting a moving target. Therefore, I think it will be more helpful to visitors to provide a conventional blog, in reverse chronological order, that posts detailed "current events" items as they occur. Yeah -- students should read it daily to prepare for the professor's next pop quiz. (Just joking!) The blog will allow items to archive off, and will provide links to archives or more static articles as necessary. The blog will assume some basic knowledge of the legal, technical and social issues at hand. I'll try to keep it lively with more images (rated no higher than PG-13).
One of these will keep up with "law v technology" issues as they occur. These would include problems like COPA and the controversy over employers' checking myspace.com (and similar social networking or personal) profiles of job applicants.
I expect to start a second blog keeping track of GLBT issues on a state-by-state or country-by-country basis.
I have not yet determined whether the legal blog will stay on this name or whether it will have a new name.
