The First Blawg: New Runner-Up?

In a series of posts (here, here and here), I've been trying to identify the first legal blogger. My conclusion is that it was Overlawyered, which launched on July 1, 1999. The next-oldest I listed was Instapundit, whose archives start on Aug. 8, 2001.

For all my snooping, I am embarrassed to have left out Library Stuff, the blog of law librarian Steven M. Cohen, which started on Aug. 4, 2000, and marked its seventh anniversary Saturday. I say "embarrassed" because I attended a program Steve did many years ago at New York LegalTech that provided one of my earliest introductions to blogging. That launch date would make Steve second in age to Overlawyered.
