For the weekend, you might want to check out two new voices in the blogosphere. The other day, USC Law and History Prawf, Mary Dudziak, started the Legal History Blog. Though it is independent, I wonder if it might turn into a ripe target for acquisition from the Caron Blog Empire.
Also, Prawfs alumni, Gaia Bernstein and Frank Pasquale (both of sizzling Seton Hall) have announced the launch of the a new blog: Law & Technology Theory. As Gaia explained to me, the goal of this new venture is to inquire if there is room for a broader approach regarding whether we should have a general theory of law and technology that will formulate general principles of how the law should react to technological change.
They have assembled an international group of young scholars working in the United States, Canada and Australia, who have started to think about the possibility of a counter- specialization trend. They also wanted to create a new forum for discussing ideas that is more open and participatory than the average academic conference, but a bit more focused than the average blog. So they decided to have a blog that would focus on a series of "speakers," with each taking "center stage" for a different week. Chalk this up on the board of Law School Innovation!
