the Irish for rights

I knew this was a good idea!

Last April, the Berkman Centre for Internet and Society, Harvard Law School hosted a Symposium on Bloggership: How Blogs Are Transforming Legal Scholarship. The event was podcast at the time; and the papers were made available on the Social Science Research Network (SSRN). Now comes the news that the symposium will be published on dead trees by the Washington University Law Review. Paul Caron, of Law Professor Blogs fame, who organised the symposium, has just posted an update of his introductory paper from the symposium on SSRN to appear to appear in vol 84 of the Washington University Law Review early next year. Thanks for all of that, Paul. It provides me with just the kind of justification I need to keep going with this blog. As I say in the title, I knew this was a good idea.

  1. […] Following on the success of the Berkman Symposium on blogs and legal scholarship (on which I have already commented on this site), there comes the welcome news of advance plans for a Legal Blogging Conference in London, currently pencilled in for late April/early May. Maybe somebody there will be able to tell me why I’m doing this? […]

Me in a hatHi there! Thanks for dropping by. I'm Eoin O'Dell, and this is my blog: Cearta.ie - the Irish for rights.

"Cearta" really is the Irish word for rights, so the title provides a good sense of the scope of this blog.

In general, I write here about private law, free speech, and cyber law; and, in particular, I write about Irish law and education policy.

Blogroll (or, really, a non-blogroll)

What I'd like for here is a simple widget that takes the list of feeds from my existing RSS reader and displays it here as a blogroll. Nothing fancy. I'd love a recommendation, if you have one.

I had built a blogroll here on my Google Reader RSS subscriptions. Google Reader produced a line of html for each RSS subscription category, each of which I pasted here. So I had a list of my subscriptions as my blogroll, organised by category, which updated whenever I edited Google Reader. Easy peasy. However, with the sad and unnecessary demise of that product, so also went this blogroll. Please take a moment to mourn Google Reader. If there's an RSS reader which provides a line of html for the list of subscriptions, or for each RSS subscription category as Google Reader did, I'd happily use that. So, as I've already begged, I'd love a recommendation, if you have one.

Meanwhile, please bear with me until I find a new RSS+Blogroll solution
