Here are a few of the pieces from the social web I enjoyed reading recently. I shamelessly stole the idea from Bradley B. Clark, who writes the Texas Law Blog. I don’t know who he lifted the idea from….
There’s always something interesting going on at Ken Adams’s The Koncise Drafter for folks who are into contract language. My favorite discussion this week was Excluding Consequential Damages in a Confidentiality Agreement.

From @AMDCPA came a link to Top 10 Survival Tips for Manufacturers. It’s worth a read for those who still make stuff.
This is one you might want to drop into Instapaper until you have a few minutes to think, but you’ll be glad you did. A Second Economy as Big as the First? will give you food for thought about automation and its effect on the economy.
