Leave it to Kevin Heller to figure out the whole Blawg Review shake-up thing. On the tenth anniversary of our attempt at reinvigorating the venerable carnival, which received less than uniform praise and certainly could be fairly characterized as "stirring the pot," the Tech Law Advisor published Blawg Review #58 with just enough shaking to get it right.
Kevin sliced and diced the usual format for the review, presenting it in a crisp, organized, and very nicely designed package. His shaking largely accomplishes what we had hoped for -- people are actually reading the review instead of just scanning it to find the link to their site.
I've talked to a few law bloggers about this...and they confirm it. Blawg Review #58 is being read, not scanned. Turns out we like our revolutions shaken, not stirred. Who knew.
Nicely done Kevin.
