Smoking After Year Two

Smoking After Year Two!

Yes, eDiscovery Today is smoking after year two! Because it’s 4/20! See what I did there? 😀 eDiscovery Today is two years old today! And our growth is smoking hot! 🙂

Once a year, we look where we see where we’ve been so far (“what a long, strange trip it’s been” seems like a perfect lyric for 4/20, by the way) and this morning’s post is number 951 in two years! Hey, we can celebrate our 1,000th post soon!

eDiscovery Today is smoking after year two and we have already published 783 posts on Electronic Discovery related topics (including 233 Case Law posts), 171 posts on Privacy, 154 posts on Security and 153 posts on Information Governance.  And eDiscovery Today has already posted 333 posts on Industry Trends, across eDiscovery, data privacy, cybersecurity and InfoGov. And many more topics as well!


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, IPRO, Prism Litigation Technology, Insight Optix, Cimplifi, Vound, Cobra Legal Solutions, NICE-Nexidia, Sandline, Hanzo, Avansic, Ligl and Onna) sponsor the blog and its content and each of eDiscovery Today’s Educational partners have shown a commitment to education within this industry. 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! And special thanks to David Greetham and Trent Walton for their support as well!

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, traffic on eDiscovery Today rose 287% in 2021, compared to 2020. And it continues to grow – the last two months have been record months in terms of visitors!  So, I appreciate all of your support!

Just a reminder that you can get a copy of all industry reports eDiscovery Today publishes (including the 2022 State of the Industry Report) 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 #952!  In the meantime, forgive me if I celebrate the fact that eDiscovery Today is smoking after year two!  🙂

P.S. – If you’re going to celebrate with me that eDiscovery Today is smoking after year two, please do it responsibly… 😉
