E-discovery -- a multiheaded monster?

Blawg Review #44 writer Bob Coffield, a lawyer practicing health care law at Flaherty, Sensabaugh & Bonasso, in Charleston, W.Va., takes note of the multitude of communications that could be cause for concern for companies that might be involved with e-discovery requests.  It makes a good point about the communications we use so freely in the workplace. 

"Mail, instant messaging, wikis, blogs, social networking, online news aggregators, social bookmarking and other hosted means of communication and knowledge management are being used more and more by professionals and business employees," notes Coffield.

He refers to a piece by Denise Howell, who raises some interesting questions about the effect increased use of hosted communication and KM systems could have  on businesses faced with litigation and e-discovery.
