If you practice marine law, environmental law or are just generally interested in the ocean (I fit the latter category), the National Oceanic & Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) has released an on-line library of scads of ocean and related media including photos and videos. NOAA, the agency responsible for marine management, includes in its database media from areas under its protection, offering access not generally available to the public for imaging.

Wikipedia: One Step Closer to Reliability

According to James Levy at the Legal Writing Prof Blog, BNA is reporting that Wikipedia’s founder is urging the Wikimedia Foundation to adopt a system of “flagged revisions” for anonymous contributions. The system will require that contributions from anons must receive approval from either administrators or “reliable” users, whatever that latter category means.

Whether or not this “enhanced” security will result in greater reliance and comfort for those interested in propping themselves up on Wikipedia remains to be seen. At least it’s a step in the right direction.
