Today marks another milestone in my life as a Technologist. I was asked at the last minute to testify in the Virgin Islands Superior Court on an Internet matter involving domain ownership. I was sworn in and qualified as Expert witness in Information Technology and Web Technologies. It’s official ! I am an Expert in the eyes of the Law !!!
I was assured that I did a good job and now can put that under my belt.
Some things to consider if you are going to testifiy in court
- Guys wear a blazer or a suite. That place is has the AC set to high. After about 30 minutes my fingers began to tingle.
- Do not ramble on. Answer the question and only the question. I know us techies like to elaborate, but don’t ! Imagine you are doing one line logic tests. If asked X then respond Y. No elseif. No grouped responses.
- The court physical layout are not like TV (e.g Court Judy or Matlock). In fact it was quite efficient in it’s design and function. A lot of curves and smart use of space.
