Linked: Ongoing M365 Tenant Upgrades/Migrations

It’s not normal for us to be using a platform that works one way, then changes and works another way two weeks later, but that is absolutely the way the Agile development is going to happen. The decision to change will be pushed by the business case for making the change, eDiscovery will be a second thought, if a thought at all.

That means two things in my mind in addition to the things Greg lays out in his post below.

1. You have to test, test, test. Constantly. You have to stay on top of new features, old feature changes, undocumented changes, etc.

2. The legal industry as a whole is going to have to get a lot more comfortable with “good faith efforts” being a little more of a gray area as these changes get made. What we could collect easily before, may require a lot more time and effort today, or it may not be possible today because of a bug in a recent update.

It’s going to happen. Whether you want to talk about M365, Google, cloud document management, cloud review platforms, or even cloud backups. Things will happen beyond our ability to control them, and those things will impact eDiscovery. Are we going to be OK accepting that?

The Insanity of Forcing Tech Companies to Pay For Linking to News

The Insanity of Forcing Tech Companies to Pay For Linking to News

I’m sure many of you have already seen the ongoing battle between Facebook, and Google, and the Australian government. The government, mostly at the behest of Rupert Murdoch, is about to pass a law that forces the “big tech” companies to negotiate with news publishers to pay them for the content that is linked to on Google News or on Facebook. 

I’m hear to argue that this is legitimately insane.

Linked: How to Use RSS Feeds to Boost Your Productivity

RSS is not gone, quite the opposite. Most people, however, don’t use RSS subscriptions like they did in the old Google Reader days, but RSS is running underneath a whole lot of stuff that we all use every day.

But, I also want to point out that there are a TON of good reasons to use an RSS reader now. Maybe more than there were when Google still had one. As it is, we’ve sort of grown into this habit of letting social media inform us. If there’s some topic we want to know about, we’ll follow some accounts and let the algorithm decide for us what we need to see.

Look how well that’s working out.
