Hi everyone. Well, I, this weekend I just had to kind of shut myself down a little bit. I mean, I actually went online both Saturday and Sunday. Sunday, it’s like, I started to think, what am I doing? What am I doing to myself? I’m going online every single day doing stuff. And I, I don’t think it’s good for me to do that. So I am seriously, seriously thinking of taking a break either on weekends or just one day of the weekend from all online activity. Seriously. I’m, I’m just really starting to think about that. Except maybe Duolingo. <Laugh> I like keeping up my, I know it’s an algorithm, but you know, I can’t help myself. Yeah. I’m addicted. That’s what happens. You become addicted to this stuff and it’s like, you have to do it or you feel like, oh, you know, I haven’t done something that I should. No, you don’t have to.
In retrospect, I should have done more of an introduction, explaining that this is a topic that should be discussed. It should be made, as they say, “part of the narrative.” 🙂
Hi, everyone. I’m gonna talk about something a little bit different today. I don’t know if you remember the hearings before the congressional subcommittee investigating competition and digital markets. They took testimony from the four companies there, Alphabet, Amazon, Apple, and somebody else. I don’t remember. Was it …Facebook! Facebook, of course. Facebook. So yeah, I always wondered what happened after that. This happened after that, this.
Okay. Uh, hi! 🙂 Yeah, this is just something I’m gonna pass along, cause I’ve always thought it kind of funny. When I was in law school, I had an evidence teacher, Larry Gibson, Professor Larry Gibson, who is a big figure in legal circles around here. Anyway, he’s a really nice guy too, and a great teacher.
I’m starting what I hope to make a regular feature on this blog (or possible another—we’ll see how it goes). As a lawyer, I’m often dismayed, discouraged, and disheartened at the way the profession is depicted in popular media. But, the usual lawyer jokes aside, there’s also the matter of getting the details right, which can be difficult in that the “answer” is so often a matter of multiple circumstances that require a case-by-case analysis, i.e., basically, we fall back a lawyer’s favorite words: it depends.
