My Background




Below are some of the articles I've written on law and technology. All errors and omissions in these pieces are mine, though I will try to blame my editors, parents, and, of course, technology consultants for leading me astray.

If you like this site and would like to suggest topics for future pieces, please e-mail me at wendytech@gmail.com. If you dislike the site and wish to rant and rave, please sign onto any legal academia e-mail discussion list and just type away. You'll fit right in.
