I’ve landed a new client for Zing, and they’re asking me to sign a non-disclosure agreement. This isn’t anything new or unusual– it happens fairly often when I start projects. What makes this one a bit different is that the client is a law firm. And they take their NDA quite seriously.
My favorite part of it is the clause discussing confidential business information and how I’m not supposed to disclose it to others. But rather than saying I just can’t disclose it “electronically”, they specify all of the ways I might do so:
Wow, that’s pretty comprehensive. To think they’re worried I might post their information on a BBS, or perhaps on a Gopher site somewhere. Hah! Those technologies are so 1990.
