If you've ever overpaid for a legal document, sign up for Docracy, First Round's newest investment

This is going to be BIG.

Plus, I'd make the argument that Docracy's initial userbase will be people who otherwise wouldn't have went to a lawyer at all, going without documentation or using something probably not appropriate for them. There's also no reason why you can't pay your lawyer to draft a document, put it up on Docracy for the sake of transparancy, and fork it when you need to make private adjustments for individual situations.

Never handle a document twice!

Berkonomics

But to find what is important, we usually have to at least scan a document or email, engaged for no less than a short moment and perhaps for the full reading of the document before moving on to look for important issues to resolve.
