Adding Electronic Signatures to Contracts

If you want to know more about what’s involved in adding an electronic signature to a contract, I suggest that you look at this post by Dennis Kennedy. In addition to links to some useful background information, it includes a link to a post by Adobe’s Rick Bornstein on creating and using signature stamps in Adobe Acrobat.

My interest in electronic signatures is that of a bystander: given what I do, I have no need for the technology. If you use or have used electronic signatures, I’d be interested to hear what your experience has been.
