Quote of the Day - Justice has nothing to do with what goes on in a courtroom; Justice is what comes out of a courtroom. - Clarence Darrow
A Test Lab For Social Media In The Courts
The Order in the Court 2.0 project will turn a Massachusetts courtroom into a test lab for how courts deal with social media, electronic journalism and digital technology. Please join me and my fellow attorney and co-host Bob Ambrogi as we discuss this pioneering project with John Davidow, the wbur.org executive editor who helped WBUR win a $250,000 grant from the Knight News Challenge to launch the project, and Judge Mark S. Coven, presiding justice at Quincy District Court, where the project will be based. They take a look at the program's goals and challenges and the broader issues raised by bloggers, tweeters and other forms of new media in courtrooms nationwide.
