WordstoDeeds update

This post is just to let you know about a few small changes around here.

First of all, the blog’s banner name has switched around – as you can see at the top of the page. It seems to fit in better with how people refer to the blog and with the URL (thanks Ken). I hope you agree!

Second, I have now created a Scoop.it topic for articles that might be of interest to readers of this blog, relating to legal translation. You can find it here: http://www.scoop.it/t/legal-translation. It won’t be updated every day, just when I find news items that I think are relevant.

For those who might not have discovered it yet, Scoop.it enables anyone to quickly and easily create a sort of personalized magazine.

The articles will not overlap with blog posts, but hopefully be a complement to the blog for those who are interested.

Lastly, I’m sure most people know about the Twitter feed, but just in case: http://twitter.com/#!/wordstodeeds. I tend to tweet small useful bits of information I come across, and new posts from this blog are automatically tweeted too.

World’s first Twitter moot

On Tuesday, February 21st, 2012, at 10am PST (1 pm EST), the non-profit organization West Coast Environmental Law in Canada will be hosting the world’s first ever Moot Court to be held on the popular social media platform, Twitter.

Three judges and teams from five law schools across Canada will make social media and legal history, participating in a mock appeal of a recent precedent-setting environmental case, with the teams and judges all participating via Twitter. (Thanks to Library Boy for bringing this event to my attention).
