I was very excited to see yesterday’s announcement of the Fastcase 50. My next door neighbor at work and fellow In Custodia Legis blogger, Tina Gheen, made the list! The Fastcase 50 honors “the smartest, most courageous innovators, techies, visionaries, and leaders in the law.”
Tina did an excellent job this year organizing the two legislative data challenges, Markup of US Legislation in Akoma Ntoso and Legislative XML Data Mapping, that the Library of Congress hosted. Tina also serves on the OASIS LegalDocumentML Technical Committee that is working to make Akoma Ntoso a legal document standard. She blogged about the new open source web based editor, LIME, that converts non-structured legal documents into Akoma Ntoso XML.
Congratulations Tina and to the other 49 who have made this distinguished list!
