Bad news, good news

The bad news is that the inimitable Lisa Stone, originator of Legal Blog Watch, is leaving her lookout to spend more time on her pioneering project, BlogHer, as she explains here.

The good news — for me anyway — is that I’ll be joining Carolyn Elefant to share duties taking over Lisa’s watch. Carolyn starts today. I sign on in a week or two. Our plan is to broaden the view of blogs, mix in more news and add our perspectives as lawyers.

We have big shoes to fill. Lisa kept a keen eye on the legal blogosphere, sharing her observations through a filter of professionalism, personality and grace. I wish her well.
