First we will steal all the words, then we make something BIG.

December 9, 2014

Over the last six months I’ve given some thought about directions in legal publishing, I think primarily growing out of the Copyright Codex, the sort-of relaunching of Law Genius, and ending with Bloomberg’s recent announcement of it’s digital-only bankruptcy treatise. The one idea that keeps circling back around in my notes is the difficulty legal publishers—however [...]

Two Sisters

November 15, 2014

By Jason Wilson Authors Note (2014): I received an email recently that reminded me of this post. I went back and re-read it. Still made me laugh.

Saying goodbye to a friend and colleague.

July 9, 2014
