  "Director of Electronic Discovery?" Okay, bad day aside, this is interesting.
U.S. companies will need to keep track of all the e-mails, instant messages and other electronic documents generated by their employees thanks to new federal rules that go into effect Friday, legal experts say.
But no, it goes further and look at the company that gave a quote.
James Wright, director of electronic discovery at Halliburton Co., said that large companies are likely to face higher costs from organizing their data to comply with the rules. In addition to e-mail, companies will need to know about things more difficult to track, like digital photos of work sites on employee cell phones and information on removable memory cards, he said.
I don't know, I just thought that Halliburton giving the quote was odd.
And that the have a position called "director of electronic discovery" is compelling. I realize that they are rebuilding in Iraq, but I just thought that in my time on earth, this was altogether something I have not ever witnessed before. Being that is a company that has connections with Dick Cheney, you can't help but wonder.
