BlawgDay 2005

by PG

In honor of BlogDay, during which "bloggers from all over the world will post recommendations of 5 new Blogs, preferably Blogs that are different from their own culture, point of view and attitude," I recommend five blawgs of which you may be unaware.

1) The Canadian Privacy Law Blog is more wide-ranging than its title might lead you to think. Though its coverage of that area appears to be quite thorough, it also has many posts about American privacy law, including HIPAA and EPIC's petition to the FCC to stop online companies from selling customers' phone records without consent. Speaking of which, make sure that your cell number is on the Do Not Call list.

2) Jeremy Richey has been a frequent commenter on many blogs I've read, but I don't think I've checked out his own Blawg until now. He describes himself as "Law student (3L), future litigator, blawger, and instigator of the vast right-wing conspiracy," and a couple of recent posts reveal him to be a cheerleader for the Christian Legal Society's right to discriminate against homosexuals and a future public defender as well.

3) The Stark County Law Library Blawg advertises itself as "Serving the legal community of Stark County, Ohio." I don't think that many of the posts are anything special discretely, but as a whole I approve of the project of trying to aggregate information that might be useful to practitioners in a specific place. Blawgs, including De Novo, often seem to prefer generalization of geography, subject matter, etc., so if someone uses the technology to meet a real need, I'd be excited to see it.

4) The Mommy Blawg similarly tries to focus on news relating to parenting -- women imprisoned for having meth in their breastmilk, a boy now in custody of a college mascot, and child support that begins with paying for the birth -- but often diverges into generalism too.

5) If you had more than one semester of French, you'll have an easier time reading Droit en Enfer than I did, though I could make out that it was saying flattering things about De Novo here.
