The ABA Journal will announce it in their February issue, but I've just been told that Groklaw has "earned the most votes from readers in the ABA Journal Blawg 100's Legal Technology category". Groklaw members who were watching all the vote totals told me we had more votes than any other legal blog in *any* category, actually. The ABA sent me a badge to display.
Half of the one million lawyers in the US read the ABA Journal every month, they say, so lots of new lawyers are likely to stop by now. So behave yourselves.
Nah. Just be yourself, actually. They're lawyers. They've seen it all. More than once, probably. To any new readers, welcome. If you have tech questions, Groklaw is a resource for you.
Here's the ABA badge:
I also heard from Barry B. Sookman, an attorney, who has posted his list of the ten most popular intellectual property and technology blogs' RSS feeds, and he writes: "The world’s most popular legal IP/IT news picks blog is Groklaw NewsPicks." Of course, that's measuring the RSS feeds, not visitors to the site. And Groklaw doesn't automatically add you to the feed if you click on links on our site, as I've heard some others do.
Since many of you send me links to articles of interest to put in News Picks, I'll take this opportunity to thank you, since I don't always have enough time to thank all of you personally.
[ Update: Indeed
we did get the most votes, which means if they'd put up in the IP category or the News/Analysis category, Groklaw still would have won as fan favorite. Here are the winners in all the categories.]
