Erika V. Wayne is mentioned by Carl Malamud in the O'Reilly Radar for her efforts in testing a new Legal Bug Tracker:

Calling all law librarians and law geeks! We're pleased to announce that the Legal Bug Tracker is now available for your use at

The Law.Gov movement identified 10 core principles for the dissemination of primary legal materials in the United States. If you find a jurisdiction that violates one of those principles, you can enter in a bug report. The code for the bug tracker is open source and we have a bug tracker for the bug tracker so you can help us get this ready for production.


We're now calling on the legal community to help us figure out which jurisdictions need help. Erika V. Wayne of Stanford Law School, who has led the National Inventory of Legal Materials effort and helped us test the initial software, has already entered in an initial set of bugs. The venerable American Association of Law Libraries has played a key role in the National Inventory and we're hoping their active and committed membership participate in this bug tracker.
