LII Launches VoxPopuLII Blog
LII has just launched its inaugural post on VoxPopuLII. The purpose of VoxPopuLII is to essentially cross-pollinate good ideas, create connections, and encourage dialogue. Tom Bruce notes that there are a lot of people working on a wide variety of projects in law,technology, information, public access to legal publications, etc. But much of this work is silo-ed, isolated by jurisdictional, institutional, or doctrinal boundaries. VoxPopuLII attempts to build bridges and strengthen our world legal information infrastructure by introducing readers to new voices. Posts will occur twice a month.
In the first post, Kerry Anderson, Deputy Director and Head of IT for the Southern African Legal Information Institute (SAFLII), writes about the nature of LIIs, publishing practices in different African jurisdictions, copyright complications, and free legal information. Be sure to check it out. Comments are encouraged. [JJ]
