From Craig's List.  The third paragraph is particularly interesting.

We are a collection agency/debt buyer. What we are looking for is a part time attorney to work for us as our corporate counsel, on our payroll, about 5 to 6 hours a week. This is a short term employment arrangement, no longer than 90 to 120 days.

Your job will be to sign pleadings, praecipe for entry of appearances, praecipe for writ of execution, and garnishment orders. Our paralegal will prepare all paperwork for your signature. This is very standard stuff for us.

If you are an attorney looking for challenging legal work, this is not for you. WE DO NOT NEED F LEE BAILEY- we are fee shopping. If you passed your boards with a D+, and you can sign your name, you possess all the credentials required for this job. If this opportunity interests you, please feel free to reply to this email with a brief description of who you are, when you got your law license, and what you will be needing from us in the way of compensation.

Referee Report Faults Holzman but Rejects Most Conduct Charges-NYLJ

| No Comments
Read entire NYLJ report by Brandon Pierson here.

A referee has found that Bronx Surrogate Lee Holzman (See Profile) should have fired Michael Lippman, the former chief counsel to the Bronx public administrator, and reported him to the First Department Disciplinary Committee in 2006 when he discovered that Lippman had collected excessive legal fees from estates. But the referee has rejected the rest of the charges brought against Holzman last year by the Commission on Judicial Conduct.

Read the entire article here at Mashable Business.

In what might just be the nicest cease-and-desist letter ever, the people at Jack Daniel's Properties not only politely explained the situation to Wensink, the offending author, the company even offered to help pay for the cost of designing a new cover.

Jack Daniel's Properties isn't even forcing Wensink to take his book off the shelf. Instead, the company just wants him to change the cover when it's reprinted.

Sparrow -- Get mail done -is Done (Update)

| No Comments
Sparrow has been acquired by Google!  Development has been stopped.  The Sparrow team is now working on Google products.  Sparrow will not be updated. Users are left high and dry.

Remember those stories about car companies which bought innovations so they could squelch them?  All those engines which run on tap water are still in a closet somewhere. Sparrow, the minimalist email client, which had developed a cult following, especially among mobile users, is dead...bought out by Google and shut away in that same closet.

Maybe this explains the recent Sparrow 50% off sale, we mentioned in our blurb last week.    Perhaps someone will come up with a new email client with Thunderbird and Sparrow being shut down within days of each other.

Several major companies, including Google, are working on getting elaborate 3D maps online. This latest iteration of Google maps for Android-powered devices allows users to browse select cities in a 3D fashion. Utilizing aerial imagery, the buildings appear in a three-dimensional format, which can aid people navigating their way around an unfamiliar urban environment. Visitors can customize their own views with the "tilt" and "compass" mode features, which makes things a bit more fun.
