eDJ Brief: ALTorney.com

I caught up with Rachi and Shimmy Messing after my failed attempt to reach ILTACON to hear about their new venture ALTorney.com, a cloud marketplace to connect document reviewers with clients. This is the first of many rescheduled briefing reports. I hope that you enjoy the expanded content and quotes created through the KnowNow meeting features. So what is ALTorney? Rachi and Shimmy Messing [...]

Airlines: J-I-T = Instability

Warning - non-eDiscovery and possible rant follows I was really looking forward to ILTACON 2022. I invested days scheduling and preparing to transform my usual hectic briefings into truly ‘Well Formed Meetings’ using KnowNow to research and build focused, purposeful agendas with 20+ market leading companies over two days.  As a frequent business traveler I understand how Monday’s severe weather caused more than 8,000 flight [...]

ILTACON 2022 – Take Two

My birthday present? 12 hours of airport frustration trying to get to ILTACON until United fessed up that everything going east was cancelled. Now staying over to Thursday when I eventually join you all late tomorrow. Who knows, the chaos factor may give me floor and social time? See you all as soon as the weather and airlines allow.

RelativityOne Looking Upstream – No More User Fees

In Q4, Relativity is dropping the per user license fees (~$100/month/user) for new and renewing RelativityOne customers. They are also rolling the Relativity Legal Hold into the existing data tier license model.

Citizen Developers – eDiscovery Nightmare?

Understanding Microsoft’s vision and roadmap has been one of my greatest challenges at KnowNow. The key has been #Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella’s pivot to the cloud and Microsoft 365 as infrastructure. Nadella laid out his vision of ‘Citizen Developers’ using Low Code/No Code (LCNC) tools to create business applications in his 2017 book, Hit Refresh. eDiscovery tools and practitioners are already struggling to keep [...]

My Last Startup – Know-Now.io

I launched my first tech startup in 1988. In the decades since I have been part of many others with various degrees of success and failure. During the Pandemic Pause, my mentor Skip Walter recruited me for one last ride to deliver eDiscovery analytics to knowledge artisans, the digital ronin of the gig economy. Know-now has evolved into a personal, portable knowledge management portal [...]

Secret Service Self Preservation?

Legal hold notification and custodial manual preservation of potential evidence was standard practice before complex digital systems became the primary sources. Many companies still rely on ‘do not delete’ hold instructions for mobile devices and cloud systems lacking central search, hold and collection capabilities. This approach may be appropriate in low-risk civil matters without any known bad actors or possible criminal elements. I cannot [...]

Lessons from the Secret Service Text Loss

Software and hardware migrations happen. They should not result in the loss of information potentially relevant to known or reasonably anticipated legal matters. The Secret Service says that they ‘lost’ text data from January 5-6, 2021 in a long planned “system migration”. While it now appears that some or all of the lost texts may be recovered and produced, the failure of preservation process [...]
