Bill Carleton wrote a piece last week about law firm Gunderson Dettmer making form agreements available on Docracy’s website. In case you haven’t heard of Docracy, here’s how the web company describes itself:

Mary Abraham chimed in with this post at the Above and Beyond KM blog, and Stephen B. Levy contributed to the discussion with this post at the Lexician blog. More good discussion is sure to come.
