Here’s an Interesting Interview Conducted Using a Cool Conversation Tool: eDiscovery Trends

If you regularly read sites that discuss legal technology and other important issues for the legal profession, you’re certainly familiar with the site Above the Law, which takes a behind the scenes look at the world of law and covers it on several levels, including big law, small firms, law schools, finance, CLE and, of course, eDiscovery.  Regarding eDiscovery, their latest interview gives you an opportunity to learn more about our company, CloudNine.

In Simplicity And eDiscovery? A Conversation With CloudNine’s Brad Jenkins, written by Zach Abramowitz, our CEO and co-founder discusses the evolution of our company (we’ve been around probably longer than you realize – over 13 years), the challenges of competing in a crowded eDiscovery market and, especially, the challenges of competing in that market without the benefit of outside funding from an investor or venture capital firm.  Brad also discusses our value proposition and how our approach to security is different from other SaaS eDiscovery automation providers in the market, among other things.  If you want to learn more about us as a company, this is a good opportunity to hear it from the guy (well, one of two guys) who started it all.

Another notable aspect of the interview is how it has been (and still might be being) conducted.  Abramowitz is using a mechanism called ReplyAll, which enables you to invite other writers or interesting guests to your site for interviews, roundtables, stories and debates.  So, it’s really a mechanism that facilitates conversations online.  Having commented on a couple of conversations started via ReplyAll, it’s a great way to manage discussions with a limited or (conceivably) unlimited number of participants.

When I mentioned that the interview still might be being conducted, that’s conceivably possible.  When the interview “began” on Tuesday’s article, Abramowitz had asked Brad a few questions, to which he responded.  If you checked yesterday morning, there was another question out there and, later in the day, another response from Brad.  So, the interview may still be going on as we speak!  :o)

So, what do you think?  Have you participated in an online discussion using ReplyAll?  Please share any comments you might have or if you’d like to know more about a particular topic.
