I’m Nick Holmes, a publishing consultant specialising in the UK legal sector and Managing Director of infolaw which offers a range of legal information products and services.
Binary Law focuses on my interest in legal information: how it is authored, edited, managed, processed and published; who uses it, why and what for; its syntax and semantics. And from that to access to law and justice issues.
More broadly it covers digital publishing issues: format, design and style, technologies, marketing, copyright etc – particularly as they relate to publishing by lawyers and those serving the legal industry.
I started blogging in February 2004 when there was only a handful of law bloggers.
I have been writing about the legal web since it first came into being in 1995 and I’ve republished those articles as posts in the timeline here.
