ESI Survival Guide is an online resource to help legal professionals survive in the electronic wilderness. The intersection between law and technology seemingly creates the perfect professional odd-couple – technologists are not necessarily known for their legal expertise, and lawyers are not generally known for their technological savvy. However, there is a whole new breed of professional that has responded to the challenges of the Information Age. Our goal with ESI Survival Guide is to provide a forum for these individuals to teach their craft, showcase their skills, and impart their knowledge all for the greater good. We hope that through this resource, the electronic wilderness will cease to be a place where lawyers “fear to tread” (acknowledgements to Magistrate Judge John M. Facciola), but rather stroll peacefully. In fact, we would even like to see this wilderness become less wild as new travelers use this site as a guide on how to set up permanent settlements in the Information Age.
