A Quick Look at Diplomacy Monitor
St. Thomas University School of Law (Miami) has set out to track Internet-based global diplomacy. The School's Diplomacy Monitor uses specially developed proprietary software to monitor the global output of communiqués, official statements, press briefings, position papers, interview transcripts and news releases from hundreds of diplomacy-related websites in near real-time and channel it into a synthesized information stream for scholars, diplomats, journalists, researchers, students and others interested in the interaction among nations.
In additional to using the site's search engine, the Diplomacy Monitor's documents can be accessed by the following channels:
- MAJOR INTERNET-PUBLISHED DOCUMENTS – An instant snapshot of the latest priority documents related to current major issues.
- ALL SUBSTANTIVE INTERNET-PUBLISHED DOCUMENTS – All substantive official documents detected that are related to diplomacy or international trade, displayed in order of their release on the Web.
- DIALOGUE – Newly issued documents related to the practice of diplomacy, including visits, meetings, conferences, diplomatic posts and telephonic interactions.
- HUMAN RIGHTS – Newly issued documents related to human rights.
- COMMERCE/TRADE – Newly issued documents related to commerce and international trade.
- INTERNET-PUBLISHED DOCUMENTS BY REGION – Documents categorized by region.
- INTERNET-PUBLISHED DOCUMENTS BY ISSUE – Documents categorized by current and standing major issues, as defined by the United Nations and news media globally. See http://diplomacymonitor.com/stu/dm.nsf/issue?OpenForm
- INTERNET-PUBLISHED DOCUMENTS BY NATION (SOURCE) – All substantive documents published on the Internet by entities of a specific nation.
- INTERNET-PUBLISHED DOCUMENTS BY NATION (AFFECTED) – All substantive documents published on the Internet by other nations and international organizations that have implications for a specific nation.
- NATION-TO-NATION INTERNET INTERACTION – An instant snapshot of all substantive Internet documents issued by two nations with implications for the other.
- NATION-TO-ISSUE – All substantive Internet-published documents issued by a specific nation involving a given topic or issue.

St. Thomas University School of Law (Miami) also publishes U.S. Law School News Brief. The News Brief tracks press releases published in law school websites. If you find humor in "law porn", the oftentimes outrageous steps law schools take to promote themselves (aka Sextonism), this is the site to visit (or just take the RSS feed).
