Omar Ha-Redeye conducting a training session on social media for the public sector on Wednesday, March 9, 2011, for the Masters Certificate in Public Management at the Schulich Executive Education Centre (SEEC).
Apparently some people do have warm, fuzzy feelings for tax agencies (an issue discussed during the presentation), and this press release was received around the same time of the presentation:
This talk was given to marketing professionals at the Schulich School of Business.
Presentation included questions and answers, as well as interactive exercises using the brands and companies of participants, but this content has been removed to respect the privacy of the companies involved and their representatives.
Legal cases discussed include:
Glenn Kauth of Canadian Lawyer magazine mentioned Omar Ha-Redeye in the current June 2009 issue,
Even law students are using the Twitter-blog combination to get their names out there and position themselves in the field. Omar Ha-Redeye, a second-year student at the University of Western Ontario law school, has garnered a lot of attention through his blog as well as through the web sites Law is Cool and Slaw, too, which he says is already benefiting him as he develops a reputation well before he graduates. “I have lots of informal mentorships with lots of lawyers practising in the field.”
The article also interviewed Erik Magraken of MacIsaac & Co, Deborah Glendinning of Osler Hoskin & Harcourt LLP, Rick Powers of the Rotman School of Management, Simone Hughes at Borden Ladner Gervais LLP, Michael Rabinovici of AR Communications Inc, Dan Michaluk and Susan Carnevale of Hicks Morley Hamilton Stewart Storie LLP, Michael Rynowecer of BTI Consulting Group Inc., and David Diamond of Diamond & Diamond Lawyers.
A review of the piece by Omar Ha-Redeye can be found on Slaw.
Consolidating its position at the cutting edge of new media technology, the Guardian today announces that it will become the first newspaper in the world to be published exclusively via Twitter, the sensationally popular social networking service that has transformed online communication.
It’s a gag of course, but a good one.
Oh my goodness. From a tweet from Omar Ha-Redeye:
SAN DIEGO — A mistrial was declared Monday when a home-invasion robbery suspect smeared human feces on his attorney’s face then threw more at the jury.
Weusi McGowan, 37, was upset because San Diego Superior Court Judge Jeffrey Fraser refused to remove Deputy Alternate Public Defender Jeffrey Martin from the case, prosecutor Christopher Lawson said.
At the mid-morning break, McGowan produced a plastic baggie filled with fecal matter and spread it on Martin’s hair and face, then flung the excrement toward the jury box, hitting the briefcase of juror No. 9 but missing the juror himself.
And the ringer:
“That juror didn’t even see it coming,” Lawson said.
This is probably one of the neatest Twitter tools to emerge recently.
It gives you tons of information, but it’s also just a little bit scary.
And yes, you will have to read the article to see what it’s all about.
And not the obvious connection of writing briefs, pleadings and memos.
Sperry is talking about writing outside of the law.
Not all legal writers were born to be memoir writers…
I am of the opinion that any writing practice is good writing practice.
She mentions various writers she has encountered that write while in the law or in law school.
She continues with some very kind words,
One of my Twitter follows, law student Omar Ha-Redeye, has just published a textbook on Population Health, Communities and Health Promotion that will be used in Australian universities. Now, THAT is impressive under anyone’s definition of the word.
While I am wowed by the sheer magnitude of the task of writing a book while negotiating Torts, Constitutional Law, Evidence and Commercial Paper, I am not surprised. I believe an interest in writing necessarily precedes an interest in pursuing law.
It wasn’t an easy task, so the encouragement is definitely appreciated.

The mention hasn’t resulted in a huge increase in followers, but that could be because most of those reading the review are already connected.

Another interview from the last Podcaster Meetup in Toronto just went live. NinjaRadio of Hot Fossils and Rebel Matter Show has an interview with Omar Ha-Redeye, Connie Crosby (Community Divas) and Shadow and James.
Strangely, the conversation turns to Omar’s voice, but also podcasting and podcamps, Twitter and of course a touch of politics considering the time of year.
There’s also a really neat picture that just had to be reproduced here.
