10 years ago this week in the ILB

Last week the ILB started this new weekly feature. Here is this week's choice.

On Feb. 12, 2004 the ILB posted a quote from an article by legal technology expert Dennis Kennedy on 2004 legal technology trends, pointing to the newfangled idea of the law blog as an example:

4. Blawgs and RSS Feeds. How many of these names are familiar to you? "Ernie the Attorney," "Bag and Baggage," "NetLawBlog," "Inter Alia," "beSpacific," "LawTech Guru," "ethicalEsq?", "tins," "My Shingle," "The Trademark Blog," "George's Employment Law Blog," "GrepLaw," "LawSites," "Stay of Execution," "How Appealing," "The Indiana Law Blog," "Copyfight," and "DennisKennedy.Blog."

These are names of a relatively small sampling of the blawgs that have given the legal profession a new and vibrant image among the growing number of influential opinion-leaders who have flocked to the world of blogging. A blog, as you may know, is a new kind of content-focused web site, typically built with blog authoring software, that displays new content as postings or articles in a reverse chronological order. They are cheaper, easier and, arguably, more effective than most standard web sites. * * *
