August 2015 Highlights

Aug. 2: We co-sponsored the Ing3nious 2015 SoCal eDiscovery & IG Retreat. In the afternoon we ran a two-hour set of well-attended and raucous roundtable discussions. Look for more of the same – and more – in the future.

Aug 12: We released an updated version of Browning Marean’s ESI Cost Budget spreadsheet.  Go here to download the updated calculator or, if you prefer, a zip file containing all five calculators. We have another budget calculator in the works, which we hope to release next week.

Sept. 1: At ILTACON 2015 we moderated “20 EDiscovery Warnings in 60 Minutes” with a standing-room only crowd.  Thanks to our speakers – Doug Austin, Tom Barce, Doug Brush, Rodney Holaday, Janice Jaco, Alex Lubarsky, Hal Marcus, Brandon Mount, Scott Zimmerman and Josh Zylbershlag – and to our sponsor, RICOH! David Horrigan of kCura kept the tweets flying throughout the session. Check it out.
