The Patent trend
Brad Feld and Fred Wilson (oy - I wish he was not so right!) talk about patents (software and technology) from the investor/venture/entrepreneur side of things. Being on their side of the coin now - I think they are absolutley correct. Boy - have times changed for me. This is such a disturbing trend that it makes me want to scream! Instead, I blog to 3 people.
By the way - Fred may be correct, but he should say that lot's of money gets BLOWED UP - no matter which side you are on - so that just like nuclear bombs, they are dangerous in the wrong hands!
A late addition to the software patent story from Paul Graham - a good one.
