Updates on Two E-Discovery Sites

Updates to two of the sites I discussed in my recent two-part article, “Discovering E-Discovery on the Web” (Part One, Part Two):

First, I wrote in the article that DiscoveryResources.org “may be the leading e-discovery portal” and that its Sound Evidence blog, written by e-discovery expert Mary Mack, is “one of the best known e-discovery blogs.” Tomorrow, the site will be relaunched with a number of updates and improvements. According to Mack, changes to the site will include:

  • New navigation for tracking e-discovery best practices and case law.
  • New “From the Experts” articles on current e-discovery issues and trends.
  • A new “Bookstore” featuring the latest books on e-discovery issues.
  • RSS feeds for tracking the latest news and information.
  • Updated links to industry resources and judicial opinions.
  • A newly designed monthly newsletter.
  • Links to industry blogs and other e-discovery community resources.

Meanwhile, one of the blogs I discussed in the article, Information Governance Engagement Area, has been discontinued in favor of a more ambitious project. Its author, Rob Robinson, a marketing veteran who has worked with several e-discovery companies, has just launched Complex Discovery, which he describes as a source for “information, tools and tactics relevant to the growing discovery market.” The site is organized around key e-discovery stages, including collection, processing, review and production, and already has a number of useful resources. In addition to the “standard” articles, news items, guidelines and the like, Robinson has incorporated several innovative features:

Robinson invites suggestions of relevant RSS feeds to add to his Yahoo! Pipes aggregator.

    Complex Discovery looks like it has good content, but it’s impossible to read with the white text on a pale grey background.

    E-discovery reflects the natural collision of technology and legal practice. As an enterprise creates an ever-growing mountain of records, adversaries of course want access to it. Knowing that litigation and e-discovery are inevitable, I argue an enterprise can use technology proactively to make records more benign.
