  10. I really appreciate your blog, Mr. Gilliland! I am an attorney in Santa Rosa starting up a company consulting other attorneys on e-discovery and data evidence issues. I read all your case analyses and it really helps me stay up to date and keep my clients up to date, too. Hope to run into you at one of the several e-discovery conferences this year. Happy 2014!
