It's been about 18 months since Ernie Miller and I—with a dollop of Glenn Reynolds thrown in for good measure—were musing about how the public airing of prelitigation demand letters might affect dispute resolution as we know it. This current brouhaha is particularly interesting because it already has drawn so many legal professionals into the discussion. The participation and insights being provided remind me a little of Harvard's Openlaw project, coming together in an even more ad hoc manner. (See again Larry Lessig's Wired column on political blogs: "A managed community works about as well as a managed economy. So the challenge is to find a way to build community without the community feeling built.")
