You would think people would stop having to relearn this lesson every few years, but alas here we are.
Do you know all of the locations where your business data may be lurking? Do you have a plan to collect and preserve it? Good luck with that… If an employer does not offer a certain solution, or if the solution provided is unsatisfactory, users can and generally will start using an alternative with a…
I was watching this video of a Google Talk by Max Stossel recently. It’s a bit long by internet standards, and his poetic style might take a minute to get used to, but it’s well worth thinking about. Even if you only watch the first ten minutes, do it. (But really, set some time aside…
This article was being passed around on the Yahoo LitSupport mailing list, and since it specifically talks about a program that we have used, albeit in very limited capacities, in trials before, it really caught my eye as something to pass around the firm.
