If National Public Radio reporting is a sign, then e-discovery is breaking out of the legal press and into the public consciousness. 

E-Mail, the Workplace and the Electronic Paper Trail, a Morning Edition segment on 18 June 2008 provides a short, lay person view of some of the many EDD challenges. The text and audio appear identical.

The report seems accurate to me. If you are an EDD or litigation support professional, there is no news here but that’s fine. The value to you of this piece is (1) to help educate the many lawyers who still have their head in the sand about EDD and (2) to show something to your friends that is digestible and professionally produced so they can begin to understand what you do (Hey, listen to this Morning Edition segment – it’s all about what I do at work every day!).
