This satirical blog post and product announcement were created for kCura’s April Fools’ Day 2015 celebration. (We wish it were real, too!)
Glass harmonica inventor Benjamin Franklin once said, “Tell me and I forget. Teach me and I remember. Involve me and I learn.”
Ben Franklin knew what he was talking about, and this adage is one we take to heart. e-Discovery is a collaborative space, but not a lot of folks realize it. We often hear stories of customers working closely with their own clients, while involving multiple members of their own teams—and sometimes even bringing us into the mix—to solve complex cases with tight timelines. We see groups like our most recent Relativity Innovation Award finalists collaborating internally to create really killer custom apps built on the platform. And when we launch new products, we love to involve our customers, hear their feedback, and figure out how to best solve their problems with technology.
But there’s still a pain point related to collaboration that legal and e-discovery professionals ask us about frequently, which we haven’t yet figured out: getting their families involved with e-discovery. In fact, recent studies show that most children don’t learn what e-discovery is until sometime between third grade and law school graduation—and it’s not for lack of trying.
Enter the Relativity board game. We’re taking all the fun and excitement of finding and analyzing electronic data, packaging it into a cardboard box, and shipping it straight into your living room. It’s just like work, except with dice and a castle. We hope it can make e-discovery a more collaborate experience for the whole family.
