What I’m Thankful for This Thanksgiving – eDiscovery Thanks

As a devoted blog writer and eDiscovery geek, with Thanksgiving coming this Thursday, I thought it would be a good time to talk about what I’m thankful for this holiday season from an eDiscovery standpoint.  Maybe you’re thankful for some of these same things?

So Many Wonderful eDiscovery Resources: In addition to eDiscovery Daily, there are so many wonderful resources for eDiscovery news and trend information.  I’m thankful for that because (among other reasons) it makes it easier to identify blog topics.  Here are some of the best of the bunch:

  • Ball in Your Court: Craig Ball’s always interesting and insightful blog about eDiscovery trends and best practices – Craig’s analogies and no nonsense ways of communicating are unmatched;
  • e-Discovery Team®: Ralph Losey’s blog probably covers topics in more depth than any other;
  • Ride the Lightning: When you want to know the latest trends on data security and the latest data breaches, Sharon Nelson of Sensei Enterprises covers it here;
  • Litigation Support Guru: Amy Bowser-Rollins covers tips and best practices for litigation support professionals (and those aspiring to be lit support professionals);
  • Bow Tie Law’s Blog: Josh Gilliland provides analysis of case law decisions with a unique perspective that is always educational;
  • Complex Discovery: Rob Robinson is the master at compiling stories and statistics related to eDiscovery topics, ranging from industry acquisitions to case law related to predictive coding.

Industry Thought Leaders Sharing their Time: For the past four years, we have published a thought leader interview series with several eDiscovery industry thought leaders that have always been willing to share their time to discuss their thoughts on emerging trends in the industry.  I want to thank all of them, especially Brad Jenkins, Tom Gelbmann, Laura Zubulake, Alon Israely, Adam Losey, George Socha, Tom O’Connor, Ralph Losey and Craig Ball – each of whom have given their time for interviews more than once (some have done it all four years).  Links are to this year’s interviews – now is a great time to catch up!

eDiscovery Professionals: There are numerous eDiscovery professionals with interesting stories to tell – I’m thankful for those that agreed to tell their stories to our blog, including: Duane Lites, Charlotte Riser Harris, Stuart W. Hubbard, Stacia Sanders, Amy Bowser-Rollins, Caroline Sweeney, Kalani Munden, Paul Savoy, Jennifer Williams, Mark Lieb, Dawn Radcliffe, Julie Brown, Angie Gossen, Gordon Moffat and Cheryl Garner.

The Decade of Discovery: I’m also thankful that Joe Looby’s film The Decade of Discovery is currently on tour and coming to Houston next week.  Check here to see when it may be heading to a screening near you.

I’m also thankful for all of you who continue to read and follow this blog.  We couldn’t have made it for over four years and 1,059 posts (and counting) without you!  Thanks!

And, personally, I’m most thankful for my family, particularly my wife Paige and our kids Kiley and Carter.  I love you!

So, what do you think? What are you thankful for in eDiscovery or in general?  Please share any comments you might have or if you’d like to know more about a particular topic.

eDiscovery Daily will resume with new posts next Monday.  Happy Thanksgiving!
