Is That Legal?

My old friend, housemate and business partner Simon Shields has just launched, a site he’s created:

…to share my knowledge, experience and research regarding law with those in our society who most need it — and with those who work towards a better world.

In many ways this project is an evolution of some early hypertext experiments that Simon and I hatched back in the late 1980s in Peterborough when Simon was running the Community Information Agency. This was pre-web, and mostly pre-Internet, but the nature of those experiments was similar — organizing information about The Law into a more navigable form.
