    Extract from article by Craig Ball

    When lawyers wake to the power of ESI–they will want materials that teach the “e,” not just the discovery.  They will want materials written by lawyers, for lawyers.

    I’ve been laboring to contribute some of those materials for many year; so long, in fact, that I’m chagrinned by how dated some of my early writings now feel.  Back in 2009, I wrote a long essay–a primer really– for the Georgetown E-Discovery Institute, back when there was still a plenary technical topic covered during that esteemed event.  It was a primer on backup systems, which were still pretty central to high-profile e-discovery disputes back then.  Over the years, I’ve written lawyer-friendly technical primers on computer forensics, e-mail systems and databases to accompany other Tech Focus sessions at Georgetown, before those sessions were curtailed.  These works, too, were getting long in the tooth and just felt, well, tired.

    So, today, I spent the whole day extensively rewriting and updating the primer on backups.  It’s now called the Luddite Lawyer’s Guide to Backup Systems, and I’m happy to put it back out there, fresh for 2016.
