In this Roundup: EDD takes time, a custom Google search for knowledge management web sites, and offshoring contract drafting. 

Conrad Jacoby explains in E-Discovery Update: Recognizing Hidden Logistical Bottlenecks in E-Discovery (, April 24, 2007) why the mechanics of copying in EDD can be time-consuming. The bottom line: given the volumes of data involved and the maximum throughput of even high-end hardware, litigants need to leave time to move and copy data. This reminds me of when parties argued over how long it would take to copy a couple hundred boxes of paper – I guess some things never change!

Kenneth Adams of Adams Drafting wrote a good article on offshoring contract work: CONTRACT DRAFTING:Sending Contracts Offshore in GC New York (4/19/07, free registration required). He answers the question “When, if ever, does it make sense to have your contract-related legal services performed overseas?” The article features Oracle Corp as an example, discusses captives versus vendors, and looks at Pangea3 and UnitedLex as examples of vendors.
