"The ins and outs of metadata mining" is an article published this week in the Canadian edition of Lawyers Weekly. I was quoted in the article, along with Canadian legal technology experts like Dominic Jaar and Dan Pinnington.
September's Digital Edge: Lawyers and Technology podcast was titled Metadata – What You Can't See Can Hurt You. My podcast teammate, Sharon Nelson, and I discussed metadata. Sharon, as a principal of a computer forensics firm, has practical insights on this topic. I discussed the ethical issues of metadata mining. We hope you find this podcast enjoyable and informative.
Last month I did an Oklahoma Bar CLE webinar on Legal Ethics and Metadata. The archived version of this can be purchased and viewed for MCLE ethics credit, depending on your jurisdiction's MCLE rules, of course.
The Lawyer's Weekly article notes some metadata mining techniques and contains a lot of useful information. Some lawyers remain uniformed about the significance of metadata, but with online resources like the three listed about, there's really no reason for that.
