I use this blog to gather information and thoughts about invention and innovation, the subjects I've been teaching at Stanford University Continuing Studies Program since 2005.
The next course is Principles of Invention and Innovation (Summer '13).
Our book "Scalable Innovation" is now available for pre-orders on Amazon http://www.amazon.com/Scalable-Innovation-Inventors-Entrepreneurs-Professionals/dp/1466590971/

The crazy world of today's privacy policies.
via The New York Times:
As they note in their privacy policies, Verizon, Sprint, AT&T, and T-Mobile all analyze your information to send you targeted ads for their own services or from outside companies. At least tens ofthousands of times a year, they also hand cellphone location information to the FBI or police officers who have a court order.
But ProPublica discovered that there's one person cell phone companies will not share your location information with: You.
