It’s 4/20! Time to Party!

See what I did there?  Why is the fact that it’s 4/20 mean it’s time to party? Because eDiscovery Today is one year old today!  What did you think I meant?  😉

Time flies when you’re having fun!  It even flies when you’ve published 430 posts in a single year!  Today’s post is number 431!  eDiscovery Today has already published 351 posts on Electronic Discovery related topics (including 108 Case Law posts), 80 posts on Privacy, 62 posts on Security and 55 posts on Information Governance.  And eDiscovery Today has already posted 173 posts on Industry Trends, across eDiscovery, data privacy and cybersecurity.  And many more topics as well!

Even though the blog is only one year old, it’s “growing up” quick and developing a pretty good archive of topics!  If you’re ever interested in finding all posts related to a specific topic (e.g., Technology Assisted Review, which currently has 42 posts), go to the Category drop down in the right sidebar to select your category and the posts will be listed on the page for that category.  Or if you want posts for a specific month, select the Month from the Archives drop down.  Or if you want to look for a specific search term, type that into the Search box and hit Enter.  It’s that easy!

eDiscovery Today wouldn’t be possible without its network of partners!  My Foundational Partners (EDRM and Craig D. Ball, P.C.) helped this blog get started in the first place and I am much indebted to Craig Ball, Mary Mack and Kaylee Walstad for their support!  My Educational Partners (HaystackID, Prism Litigation Technology, IPRO, Ricoh USA, Compliance, Vound, Cobra Legal Solutions and NICE-Nexidia) sponsor the blog and its content and each of eDiscovery Today’s Educational partners have shown a commitment to education within this industry.  And my Affinity Partners (eDiscovery Assistant and ACEDS) have provided unique support to eDiscovery Today that has helped this blog grow and provide unique resources, including all of the eDiscovery case law I cover.  Thanks to all the eDiscovery Today partners for your support over this past year!

Most importantly, I want to thank each of you who reads eDiscovery Today – you’re the reason for the blog in the first place!  And, thanks to you, blog traffic is up considerably this year!  Last month’s blog traffic was more than double the number of hits of each of the last four months of last year – and this month is ahead of that pace!  So, I appreciate all of your support in reading and following the blog!

Just a reminder that eDiscovery Today currently has two industry reports available for FREE for email followers of the blog:

  • 2021 State of the Industry Report (sponsored by EDRM): This report provides insight into the state of the eDiscovery industry with a ten-question survey of 183 legal industry professionals as well as quotes from 20 different thought leaders.  This combination of industry-wide survey results and thought leader observations is a unique look at key trends within eDiscovery.
  • 2020 eDiscovery Case Law Year in Review: Produced in partnership with eDiscovery Assistant, this report discusses trends involving over 2,800 eDiscovery case law opinions in 2020 covered by eDiscovery Assistant (with links to specific cases covered by eDiscovery Today, eDiscovery Assistant and the #caseoftheweek blog posts (sponsored by ACEDS).

If you’re not currently an email follower of the blog, you can get a copy of these reports simply by following the blog via email.  To follow eDiscovery Today, enter your email address at the top of the right sidebar where it says “Follow Blog via Email” to receive the report as well as emails with links to new posts.  It’s that easy – and FREE!


I (almost) always end my blog posts by asking “So, what do you think?”  So, please let me know what you think.  Please share any comments you might have or if you’d like to know more about a particular topic.  And if you think this post didn’t share any information with you that you didn’t already know, don’t worry – there’s another post coming this afternoon that (hopefully) will.  That post will be #432!  In the meantime, forgive me if I say “time to party”!  🙂

P.S. – The smoke in today’s graphic is from a birthday candle, in case you were wondering. What did you think it was? 😉
