the Irish for rights

I like Slaw

The title refers not to a salad of shredded brassica (though I like that too), but rather to slaw, which is one of my daily must-reads. It describes itself as a “co-operative weblog about Canadian legal research and IT, etc” (I especially like the “etc”), and it is a frequent source of many things I save to del.icio.us. But two recent posts are just crying out to be shared even more widely than that.

In the first post, Kim Nayer referred to two presentations at the SLA Legal Division 2007 Conference, one by Nathan Rosen on legal wikis, the other by Thomas Fleming on Legal Research for the Google Generation (warning: they’re both powerpoints, but well worth the effort). The other post, by Agnese Caruso, brought “What’s new on the legal web” to my attention (American focussed, but very useful).

Thanks to Kim and Agnese, and especially to slaw!

PS. As is always the way, ten minutes after I had published this post, it occurred to me that it really should have been called Slaw is del.icio.us!

    You are most welcome, Eoin; I’m pleased you found my find useful. (Cheers really to Nathan, Thomas and SLA for making the interesting presentations available…)

    Oh — and of course, and on behalf of Slaw, we are pleased to be part of your daily routine.

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
