The hardest question for me to answer in this world is always the "Tell us all about you" question. The best way for me to answer is that "I am composed of contradictions and subject to change without notice."

Make mine family

My brother, and fellow computer geek, was in town this week with his family. They arrived late Tuesday evening and they are leaving sometime this morning. Which left us just Wednesday evening to spend some time together. I wouldn't have missed it for the world.

My brother and I were able to talk about all those geeky things that makes the eyes of others just glaze over. We talked about iPods, High Definition television, laptops versus desktops, the old BBS days, and the benefits and drawbacks of our respective DVR systems.

We realized that one of the biggest things we have in common is in our choice of partners (his wife and my life partner). Both of our significant others demand from each of us that we let the warranties lapse before trying anything we have seen on MAKE.

so where do you and brother stand on those who patent such advancements in the arts and sciences?

While I can't speak for my brother, it seems to me that those who patent their inventions are leading the way for those who tinker with the inventions from those patents. We all stand on the shoulders of those who come before us, but in the long run it takes the tinkerers to build the better mousetrap. In the event that I was ever able to build a better mousetrap and obtain a patent of my own, I would certainly give much credit to those people that gave me the ideas from which I started.
