why five principles?

I have not done a search for the original article or press statements on ‘the Commission’s concept for the future EU data privacy framework’ as mentioned in Development and revision of global data privacy and security laws on lexology. Why five principles? This principle – Privacy by design -  sounds great with the 3 words [...]

to do with technology or not?

Is everything I do, to do with technology? When I am asleep, I guess I have nothing to do with technology unless I am in a technological related dream. This will probably be the end of my spirited being. Here is an interesting question (or a dream question?) raised by someone at the Sociotechnology and [...]

How to build bridges, start by building a raft?

I have been involved with countless IT software development projects whereby many stakeholders (including lawyers) tried to work as a team to deliver a system/software to meet various requirements. I said ‘tried’ instead of ‘must’ or ‘need’ or ‘should’. In my role as an IT manager or project manager, I will never say to my [...]

Talk on competition and collaboration

I was recently embroiled in a brief debate/discussion/exchange (don’t like the word ‘argument’) on ‘competition and collaboration’ with a couple of lawyers (who are also arbitrators). Although brief, we all agreed that we want to collaborate rather than compete. (The context of the discussion was on availability of work/cases.)  Also it’s much nicer to say [...]

two worlds colliding

Yesterday I searched and located several groups in facebook. Being a spontaneous non-geeky fast typing person I launched and posted several messages to the groups. Damn easy to spot the difference between ‘e-Discovery’ and the ‘eDiscovery Facebook Group’. Not too easy to figure out which group to join, so I joined both & also another [...]

out with the old?

Just couple of days ago, one of my twins asked: ‘Mummy what is your New Year Resolution’? I said: ‘Oh! I don’t know except I need to get rid of my old TV and cancel my TV licence’. When I said ‘old’ it’s over 20+ years aged Sony TV. Still working fine except the remote [...]

Go East

June gone, still July and August soon and the Beijing Olympics I wish I can go to the Beijing Olympics…oh well… Today, I heard over the radio (most likely BBC 3) advising visitors to the Beijing Olympic on what not to do?! One ‘not to do’ is ‘not to ask what they do’ (i.e. avoid [...]

‘How to’ collaborate with diverse stakeholders – an exploration

Given that most organisations have many policies and procedures covering various legal and compliance requirements and that there is already an industry process model, Electronic Discovery Reference Model, why do I still feel the need for a collaboration framework? Furthermore, there are technology vendors/suppliers providing various forensics and investigations related tools and software for ediscovery/disclosure. [...]

a collusion of laws,regulations & standards on e-mails

I wondered if the term, collusion to mean ‘interplay’ (or more precisely in the old etymological sense of playing fairly together?) could be used in the context of looking at the various laws, regulations and standards surrounding e-mails. According to Prof. Tony Hoare at a BCS evening talk, the collusion of the Science of Programming [...]
