Law 2.0: JD Supra Frees Legal Content

Startup JD Supra is hoping to merge user generated content with the legal community. Founded by attorney Aviva Cuyler and launched last year, the site enables lawyers, law firms, and legal professionals to publish legal documents online. The source is credited for his or her work via a LinkedIn-like profile on the site. Access is free and anyone can search the database of memos, court filings, agreements and more.

The site takes advantage of the notion that lawyers are active content creators and there should be a centralized place where this content can be uploaded, indexed and shared for free. Consumers are able to use the search engine to find lawyers and relevant cases and lawyers can use the database as a research resource for cases and deals. Searches can be filtered by jurisdiction, type of document, contributor, and subject.

Cuyler says that there are close to 1,000 legal contributors on the site, ranging from corporate attorneys to law professors to legal marketing professionals. There are also a host of well-known law firms and organizations who are currently contributing, including The Cato Institute, Mintz Levin, and The Electronic Frontier Foundation. The site is getting interest from international contributors as well.

JD Supra even has a Facebook application, where the lawyers and professionals can share their JD Supra legal documents and profile on their Facebook page, with either a box on a profile page or with a stand-alone “docs” tab added to the “wall” and “info” tabs on a profile. I’m not a lawyer, but I’m hesitant about the potential of sharing legal documents with a social network like Facebook. It’s a good idea, but it seems to be more of a LinkedIn type of resource.

JD Supra is certainly an innovative way to connect legal content with legal professionals. There are paid services like WestLaw and Lexis Nexis that provide legal content but don’t make it easy to access the professionals who created the content in the first place like JD Supra does.

IoT & Smart Cities Stories
When talking IoT we often focus on the devices, the sensors, the hardware itself. The new smart appliances, the new smart or self-driving cars (which are amalgamations of many ‘things'). When we are looking at the world of IoT, we should take a step back, look at the big picture. What value are these devices providing. IoT is not about the devices, its about the data consumed and generated. The devices are tools, mechanisms, conduits. This paper discusses the considerations when dealing with the...

Poor data quality and analytics drive down business value. In fact, Gartner estimated that the average financial impact of poor data quality on organizations is $9.7 million per year. But bad data is much more than a cost center. By eroding trust in information, analytics and the business decisions based on these, it is a serious impediment to digital transformation.
To Really Work for Enterprises, MultiCloud Adoption Requires Far Better and Inclusive Cloud Monitoring and Cost Management … But How? Overwhelmingly, even as enterprises have adopted cloud computing and are expanding to multi-cloud computing, IT leaders remain concerned about how to monitor, manage and control costs across hybrid and multi-cloud deployments.

Machine learning has taken residence at our cities' cores and now we can finally have "smart cities."

Through machine learning, buildings can optimize performance, reduce costs, and improve occupant comfort by ...
