Friday Funnies: Exterro's E-Discovery Meme Series (Black Hole Edition)

As in astronomy, in e-discovery (and information governance),  you can't get an accurate picture of something without having the right tools. Fortunately, it doesn't take 250 scientists, multiple radio telescopes, and about six years for you to get an accurate snapshot of your IT infrastructure. In fact, you can start getting a better sense with this simple checklist... Or maybe you're just interested in a chuckle. If so, you can always visit our entire catalog of E-Discovery Memes and Cartoons or download our anthology of The Top 10 E-Discovery Memes of 2018 if you haven't gotten enough, and feel... Read More

Friday Funnies: Exterro's E-Discovery Meme Series (Final Four Edition)

Created on March 22, 2019


Chief Marketing Officer at Exterro

It's the middle of March, which of course means it's time for March Madness, the one time a year when even e-discovery professionals pay some attention to college basketball (although I guess with the increasing rate of recruiting scandals, maybe there are more e-discovery pros focused on basketball than I imagine). However, if you had optimized your e-discovery process--perhaps using the principles outlined in the 2nd edition of our Comprehensive Guide to E-Discovery Project Management--you wouldn't be in this sad fellow's shoes.  But of course if you're just interested in a chuckle, you can...

Friday Funnies: Exterro's E-Discovery Meme Series (Bad News Ahead Edition)

Chief Marketing Officer at Exterro

There's really not a lot to say about this meme, as it tells the story pretty much on its own. But to be clear, not having a formal defined process for e-discovery stinks! If you don't, you're in the fast lane to a real unfortunate situation. Make sure you're not in for this sort of trouble by implementing workflows like those in Exterro's Comprehensive E-Discovery Workflow Guide. You can always visit our entire catalog of E-Discovery Memes and Cartoons or download our anthology of The Top 10 E-Discovery Memes of 2018 if you haven't gotten enough... Read More

The most interesting man in the world may generally have a devil-may-care attitude, but he knows that menefreghismo doesn't work when it comes to the obligation to preserve data. That's why he recommends you master the fundamentals of legal holds by downloading Exterro's Beginner's Guide to Legal Holds.And if you'd rather just have a laugh, you can always visit our entire catalog of E-Discovery Memes and Cartoons or download our anthology of The Top 10 E-Discovery Memes of 2018, and feel free to share the fun with friends and colleagues. Remember, E-Discovery is always better when you have...

Friday Funnies: Exterro's E-Discovery Meme Series (Trumpet Boy Edition)

Created on October 5, 2018


Chief Marketing Officer at Exterro

Why is it that so often the people that most need to hear something are the ones that block it out? I can't be sure about the quality of the trumpet playing in this meme, but I am certain that the judges' messages to attorneys should be music to their ears. After all, a little cooperation can go a long way in e-discovery, reducing the stress, costs, and timelines for both parties involved in litigation. If you want to hear the judges' tune on e-discovery cooperation (and e-discovery competence, education, and technology to... Read More

Friday Funnies: Exterro's E-Discovery Meme Series (Leo Doesn't Want to Wait Edition)

Created on August 17, 2018


Chief Marketing Officer at Exterro

From the looks of this meme, it seems Leo has picked up enough legal knowledge in his acting career to realize that waiting for a suit to be filed before issuing a legal hold is asking for trouble. And if you're at all a regular visitor to this blog, you know it too. But if you have someone in your professional life like his lackadaisical colleague, then we have the perfect gift for them: Exterro's Beginner's Guide to Legal Holds. And if you'd rather just have a laugh, you can always visit our... Read More

In case you missed it earlier this week, Exterro just announced that the 4th annual E-Discovery Day will be held on December 4, 2018. And yes, it's kind of a big deal. Last year, over 2,000 people participated in 15 webcasts and 13 live events across the US.
