Hi Friends,

Let me start our new month of blogging with a post on the great new ABA Journal Website. The site went live a few weeks ago, and includes articles from the magazine, updated daily news and a legal blog directory. The site is from ABA Journal Editor and Publisher Ed Adams, Fred Faulkner IV and the ABA Journal Web development and editorial team.

If you have not checked the new ABA Journal Website out already, you definitely should!

Hi Friends,

One of the cases of interest here in Palo Alto land is the current lawsuit by the founders of ConnectU against Mark Zuckerberg and the Facebook gang. In an interesting side light to the case, NYT’s John Markoff has written an article on Aaron Greenspan, who developed a social facebook network, called houseSYSTEM, while at Harvard… before either ConnectU or Facebook. The article also covers what Aaron is doing now, including his new company called Qubescape, and a social networking site called Common Room. Of course there is much more about Aaron, Facebook, ConnectU on the blogsphere.

And according to John’s article, Aaron has chosen not to be a witness in the following cases…

Hi Friends,

Ken, Stacy and I are going to get back to blogging… finally 🙂 We have been working on a few legal information projects this summer… which we talk about in the next few weeks.

But first, congrats to Appalachian State for beating Michigan on Saturday. It was a great game that they deserved to win. Not everyday a division IAA schools visits the number #5 team in the nation and beats them in front of every 109,000 fans. In fact never before, not even something close. Well maybe Michigan can win the rest of their games, win the BCS championship and be the second best team in the country…. And for my other school.. I went to the Stanford – UCLA game, and UCLA won (on the positive side, my seats are in the shade and UCLA is my third favorite team :).

Hi Friends,

Turner Entertainment Networks has announced plans to re-brand Court TV as truTV starting January 1, 2008. The network will also sport a new logo, new look and expanded line-up focused on the psychographic known as “Real Engagers”. truTv plans to continue with its six-hour block of trial coverage every weekday morning. Afternoons will feature Star Jones’ new talk show, and prime time, early fringe and late night will continue to offer currently running series such as Forensic Files, Haunting Evidence and Speeders, and add a host of new shows in development to the line up. Exciting must watch TV…

Hi Friends,

This weeks featured Blawg on BlawgSearch.com is the Law Dawg Blawg from the great librarians at Southern Illinois University Law School.

The Law Dawg Blawg is full of great information and tips for legal researchers, as well as being a central online community setting for SIU Law School. But what makes the Law Dawg Blawg standout are the Law Dawgs. These are Dawgs of Law, who work with and and protect law students, legal librarians, lawyers and their families. Little Sheba the Hug Pug was a special guest law dawg last year!

Yapta Hi Friends,

I initially wrote this up for the LMA list, but after rereading my email I figured it would be a good post. And it has Bellingham Washington in it, which is good.

There is a new free service that will be of interest to those who travel a lot. It is called Yapta and it tracks price changes in flights and then alerts you to price drops so you can obtain refunds or traffic coupons on the difference in price. Yapta just opened up their beta to new users. The url is http://yapta.com.

Hi Friends,

For those following the Floyd Landis arbitration at Pepperdine Law School… the blog to read is Trust But Verify — News, Research and Commentary About the Floyd Landis Doping Allegations — from David Brower. Pepperdine Law Professor Roger Alford also has some thoughts on witness tampering on Opinio Juris.
Trust But Verify – Floyd Landis Doping Allegations Blog

I am pretty sure Landis is going to lose anyway, but threatening Greg LeMond, and his buddy’s phone call… not good. The raw information before all of the 30 second media spin (but a lot of comments) are on Trust But Verify in the Hearing Coverage Section.

Gino Wins

Stacy, Dana and I went to the Contra Costa Bodybuilding, Figure & Fitness Championships on Saturday to cheer our friend Gino Eagle Johnson on in the Ultra Grand Masters category.

Gino Posing with Ultra Division Placers
Gino Posing

The Ultra Grand Masters is the division for those over 60. Gino is 70 years young and he won his class! Gino is a personal trainer at Gold’s Gym in Mountain View (where we work out :), and he plans to compete in the Nationals in Pittsburgh this July. What an inspiration!

Mr. Olympia Jay Cutler performed as the guest poser. He put on a great show posing and also talking individually to fans. Mr. Olympia shared the inspiring story of how he won the Olympia after being told he would never win it or compete professionally for that matter. Through hard work and determination he achieved his life dream.

Other Mountain View Gold’s folks also competed. Doug placed 2nd in the Grand Masters division. And Saraya placed 4th in her very first bodybuilding competition with a salsa-inspired posing routine.

There are more pictures in the extended entry.

Congratulations to all!

Peace,

Tim
