eDiscovery Trends: Announcing LTNY Thought Leader Series!

By: Doug Austin

I lied.

OK, I didn’t really lie.  I told you on Monday that eDiscoveryDaily would be tweeting throughout LegalTech New York (LTNY) this week.  Which is what I intended to do; but, I forgot how crazy it can be at the show with so many meetings, sessions and exhibit hall time.  So, I only managed one tweet per day.  I’ll have a better plan for next year, I promise.  😉

One of the reasons that I only managed the one tweet per day is that, during that time, eDiscoveryDaily was conducting interviews with several eDiscovery industry thought leaders and we’re pleased to introduce the schedule for the series, which will begin on Monday, February 14.  Happy Valentine’s Day!

Here are the interviews that we will be publishing over the next few weeks:
