Words Words Words

The legal profession is powered by words.  I’ve discussed legal dictionaries on the Web before.  Wolfram Alpha has been expanding its data-oriented search engine with 50,000 new words.  If you’re a regular Wolfram Alpha user, this will be a great addition.  You can still Google “define your-word” but the output is pretty meager compared to Wolfram Alpha.  It has details about the words origins, frequency of usage, and even the Scrabble score!

I improve information access and lead information teams. My books on finding information and managing it and practicing law using cloud computing reflect my interest in information management, technology, law practice, and legal research. I've been a library director in Canada and the US, as well as directing the American Bar Association's Legal Technology Resource Center. I speak and write frequently on information, technology, law library, and law practice issues.
