Episode Notes

“Our favorite thing to do is build and rely upon open source of technology.” —Adam Ziegler

Sam and Adam Ziegler talk about the future of law and the challenges it faces through the lens of the Harvard Library Innovation Lab. They also explore the beginnings of Perma.cc—a tool that saves links from rotting—and other products that have also come out of the Harvard Library Innovation Lab.

Sam and Aaron talk about how the Ohio Supreme Court does not know how to redact a PDF. Turns out, they are not alone. Many lawyers do not know how to properly redact their PDFs, running afoul of their state’s confidential information rules.

Adam Ziegler works at the intersection of technology and law. Currently, Adam is part of the Library Innovation Lab at Harvard Law School, where he leads several exciting projects in this field, including H2O, Perma.cc, and Free The Law. Adam also spends his time collaborating with developers, designers, librarians, lawyers, university administrators and external partners. Follow him on Twitter and Linkedin.
