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 current course is Principles of Invention and Innovation (Summer '17).
Our book "Scalable Innovation" is now available on Amazon http://www.amazon.com/Scalable-Innovation-Inventors-Entrepreneurs-Professionals/dp/1466590971/

The "Taleban" approach to the patent system:
- the system is too complex;
- we don't understand how it works;
- even the smallest chance that we get involved in a patent lawsuit makes us nervous;
- the system has to be destroyed.
