ASBPE Gold x2 for EDD coverage!

Ballcraig Craig Ball is a magician -- he can turn the dryest, most esoteric nuance of e-discovery into a compelling story that rivals the latest Grisham offering. His vocabulary is unmatched; he always finds the perfect word to illuminate the most dense concept, yet never succumbs to jargon. Like other exquisite storytellers, he uses everyday analogies -- comparing EDD processes to television shows (CSI),  murder scenes with blood hounds, or World War II challenges faced by his father.

And he is an editor's dream: his copy comes in crisp and on time, and he always monitors the published version for mistakes (which speeds online corrections). Not only does Ball write for Law Technology News, he also is a steady, pithy contributor to EDD Update So it's no surprise that Ball has collected a basket full of awards for his fine work. Last night, he won another gold, for "best contributed column" in the Northeast regional competition of the American Society of Business Publications. Check out "SNAFU" and "Brain Drain."

We were also were thilled to learn that my article, "Can You Adapt?"  which analyzed the changing roles of EDD attorneys, paralegals, and litigation support staff, also won gold, in the "best technical article" catAdaptegory. Of course, our  amazing art director Shane DeLeers shares the glory in both wins -- he always finds the perfect illustration that makes our words sizzle!

That brings us to five awards for our work in 2008 -- the most we've ever won in a single awards season: A design award from GD USA; two ASBPE gold, and two honorable mentions from the Tabbies!  Thanks to our entire team!
