On April 19, 2007 at noon, the Bar Association of San Francisco will present an MCLE program called "Blogs, Wikis and Podcasts, Oh My! Unravel New Media's Ethical Impact on Your Law Practice." Speakers include Denise Howell, author of one of the first California-based law blogs, Bag and Baggage.
UPDATE: An article called "A Brave New Wikiworld" in today's (02/24/07) Washington Post begins: "In the past year, Wikipedia, the online encyclopedia that 'anyone can edit,' has been cited four times as often as the Encyclopedia Britannica in judicial opinions, and the number is rapidly growing." The article concludes: "In just a few years, Wikipedia has become the most influential encyclopedia in the world, consulted by judges as well as those who cannot afford to buy books. If the past is prologue, we're seeing the tip of a very large iceberg." [Via How Appealing]
