SCRIPTed, Vol 6 No 1, is now online

Yes, SCRIPTed, Edinburgh University's online journal of Law, Technology and Society, has reached its sixth volume, hence the cover picture. If you look hard at the top left corner of the big version, you can just see your humble scribe (look for the blue tie and thinning thatch).
