PODCAST: Social Networks and The Law

I’ve got a thing about lawyers. I don’t know what it is.. brainy? glasses? I think they were the original geeks, before technology came along. Anyway, I am downloading this right now as we speak. (from social customer manifesto)

Social Networking for Business and the Law: A Podcast

(iTunes) (MP3)

Ok, that was fun. Had a chance to chat last week regarding social networking with a bunch of great folks, including:

Here’s a quick overview, courtesy of L2L:

“Social networking sites have reconnected old friends and former colleagues, created networking ties and have rekindled relationships all over the world. On Lawyer2LawyerOpens in a new tab., we will explore privacy rights, intellectual property issues and even defamation and cyber bullying, all rising from social networking sites and discuss the popularity of these sites and the legal issues surrounding the online world of social networking.”

This podcast was part of a series done by the LegalTalkNetwork (standard disclaimer: neither am I a lawyer, nor do I play one on the internet). Here’s a link to the show.

Who are Australia‘s top legal bloggers? Which ones podcast? I heard somewhere that lawyers keep their ‘points’ uptodate by listening to Uni courses on podcasts. Not sure what the points are – something like a licence requirement I think. Anyone know about dishy lawyers with glasses sitting on trains jacking into their iPod courseware? Which train? 😛

I haven’t listened to it – sometimes I think it would be quicker to jump on a plane and get a cassette tape than sit around waiting for BigPuddle – but why don’t you listen and then come back here and edu-ca-mate me? 🙂

One thought on “PODCAST: Social Networks and The Law

  1. I think Peter Black (http://www.freedomtodiffer.com/) and Kim Weatherall (http://www.lawfont.com/) are Australia’s leading legal bloggers. Don’t think they do podcasts though.
