Susan Estrich, Lack of Women Supreme Court Law Clerks Shows Unconscious Discrimination: "From five to seven in 30 years?" [Updated, 9/1] See also Dahlia Lithwick, Clerked Around: "[T]he declining number of female clerks is only half the story, if that. The appallingly low number of minority clerks every year is the rest of it."
As I said on the Dan & David show yesterday, California's imminent legislation warning of the hazards of open WiFi smells like jury ammo to me. See George Ou, Is a guest hotspot good legal insurance against the RIAA? Answer: less so when a trial lawyer can point to and argue the prevalance of public warnings about the dastardly deeds one's open WiFi might facilitate. Also from George: Configuring the Cisco 871W wireless router: SOHO setup.
In other news, an Aspidistra that was wilted and wan in my old office (despite their renowned hardiness) is threatening to colonize a rainforest canopy here at home. (Thus endeth the heavy handed though no less literally true metaphor.)
