As more and more law firms launch Web logs, I’ve wondered whether they will begin to hire writers to maintain them. Along those lines, I found yesterday’s Boston Globe story, A hired gun who muses with fingertips, intriguing. It tells the story of Mathew Gross, 31, the former rock band drummer, Colorado River boatman, and environmental studies graduate student, who is now Howard Dean’s full-time blogmaster. Will law firms soon have blogmasters of their own?
