Harvard Law Is Finally Doing Something Useful For The World

After centuries of sitting on that endowment and churning out lawyers who just won’t shut up about going there — ahem — Harvard has finally decided to do something valuable with their time. Specifically, Harvard is taking all those reams of dusty case law that no one is going to the library to read and making something digital out of it.

Harvard Law’s collection, second only to the one kept by the Library of Congress, includes the civil and criminal case law decisions from every state and federal court. [Harvard’s Managing Director the Library Innovation Lab Adam] Ziegler and his team estimate that across all 43,000 case law books in the collection, each has an average of about 921 pages. That’s nearly 40 million pages that need to be digitized.The law school has so many books that the majority are stored in a vast vault in a hidden hilltop repository in Southborough, out of sight and not very accessible to students and scholars.

Capping more than two years of debate, some 4,500 written comments and escalating industry turmoil, the rules also won’t resolve growing controversy over privacy protections. On such issues, local governments increasingly are pre-empting Washington by staking out positions before federal agencies reach a consensus. Recognizing the need for quick action, the Federal Aviation Administration earlier this year established separate registration requirements for all drone users.

Yet agency officials haven’t laid out the scope of future rules decisions. Cyber experts warn of hacking capability of drones.

Www.ibtimes. DJI’s Mavic Pro may already be a small and compact quadcopter drone, but the manufacturer appears to be preparing to launch an even smaller drone.
