The Dream Lives On

Today is a holiday here in the United States. We celebrate the memory of and lessons learned from the great civil rights leader, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. His dream of an equal and just society and his call to action remain as critical today as ever in our nation. We have come a long way, but there is much work that remains to be done in the struggle to make his dream a reality. Here at the intersection of law and information, we have an almost unparalleled opportunity - and thus a corresponding responsibility - to play an active role in advancing this great society. There is no role too small and no initiative unworthy. I think that shows in the numbers of activists we see in our industry. There are no shrinking violets in this garden and I am thankful every day for it.

Feeling Social?

Socially Aware is an excellent blog regarding the legal ramifications of social media from the fine folks at Morrison & Foerster. It covers not only social media itself, but includes updates from the worlds of artificial intelligence, blockchain, and more. The most recent update to the site talks about recent changes to Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube. If social media is your bag, you need to check out this blog. Start here: Social Links.
