The business-news network Bloomberg will launch a new legal research service later this month, Bloomberg Law, to compete head-on with those other giants of legal research, Westlaw and LexisNexis. I have more details about this in a post today at Legal Blog Watch: Bloomberg Takes on Wexis With New Research Service.

As I blogged about here last week, the editor of Blawg Review kicked off a meme he called Simply the Best, in which he listed his top 10 law blogs and then asked each listed blog to list its 10 top and so on like some blogger pyramid scheme. After expressing my disdain for such things, I went ahead and let myself get suckered in, listing my top 10 and dutifully passing the torch.
Now, by way of Abbie Mulvihill at the blog AbsTracked, I learn that another legal blogger, Scott Vine of Information Overlord, has started a sort of anti-meme to the Blawg Review meme, listing his top 10, but changing the parameter to a list defined as “who do I read that I think may have been overlooked by those that I read that have been meme’d??” Among his overlooked sites was the aforementioned AbsTracked, where Mulvihill played along and listed her overlooked top 10. (Wait, Abbie, beSpacific wasn’t overlooked; I had her on my list.)
If all these blawgs qualify as overlooked by not having been mentioned in the meme’s first round, shall we consider them the unmentionables?
