I apologize: I’ve been terrible at posting updates lately. My excuse naturally is that’s it’s been a hectic and jumbled bunch of weeks. For instance there’s been some travel, lots of work stuff, and I’ve also been teaching swimming lessons again on the weekends. I do love the teaching — I can hardly believe this is my 20th year doing it! — but this spring I’m doing it at TWO pools, which means that every week both my Saturdays and Sundays and most of the writing and/or recovery time they’d otherwise afford me get consumed.
One of the pool’s classes will wrap up in about two weeks though (the other’s will in June) so hopefully by then I’ll have more time for posting, which will be opportune since on May 20th I’ll be attending the third Bay Area Blawgers event. This time it’ll be held at Berkeley, co-sponsored by the Santa Clara High Tech Law Institute and the Berkeley Center for Law and Technology.
Details as posted on organizer Eric Goldman’s website:
When: May 20, 6-8 pm
Where: Goldberg Room, UC Berkeley Law School. Directions and parking.
Who: Everyone is welcome, but this event principally will cater to active legal bloggers. Bloggers and friends who have said they plan to attend include: Tsan Abrahamson, Jerry Bame, Robert Barr, Larry Downes, Eli Edwards, Bob Eisenbach, Cathy Gellis, Eric Goldman, Beth Grimm, Greg Haverkamp, Cathy Kirkman, Kimberly A. Kralowec, Ethan Leib, Cathy Moran, Joe Mullin, Deborah Neville, David Newdorf, Dana Nguyen, Aaron Perzanowski, Elizabeth Pianca, Mark Radcliffe, Colin Samuels, Jason Schultz, Tim Stanley, Stacy Stern, John Steele, Kevin Underhill, Fred von Lohmann, J. Craig Williams and Cicely Wilson. (This list will be updated as new blawgers and friends RSVP).
As in the past, the first hour will be a structured round-table discussion and the second will be for shmoozing. I really enjoyed the previous events, and if you are in the Bay Area and either like reading legal blogs (you’re reading this one, right?) or writing them you probably will too… RSVP to Eric Goldman (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you’re interested in attending.
It’s also good for an hour of general CLE credit, which I find particularly exciting, seeing how although this will be my third Bay Area Blawgers event, it will be the first where I’ve been eligible to earn it…
