7th circuit catches up with dupage county, starts a wiki

Attorney/Blogger Carolyn Elefant of MyShingle.com reports that the 7th Circuit Court of Appeals has started a wiki. In 2004 I started the first bar association blogs and wikis in Illinois right here at the DuPage County Bar Association. As it happens, the Chief Justice of the Illinois Supreme Court and Judge Bauer of the 7th Circuit are from DuPage County; maybe they got a look at those blogs and that wiki in action and decided to take the plunge? Then again, maybe they’re just following the example set by Judge Posner when he appeared on Second Life, the super-popular online role playing game in which the Judge appeared as his own Avatar (online alter-ego) to engage in Q&A with virtual law students.
