My first patent

After more than 5 years, my first patent has been awarded. Not anything to do with AstroPlanner, and not likely to make me any money as I have signed away rights to my then employer.

US Patent Office Search: type in 7590068.

This patent is pretty esoteric and describes part of a protocol for mobile wireless mesh networking. The full protocol is described over three patents, two of which are still awaiting approval (or rejection). The other two are even more arcane. I’m amazed that this patent was accepted, and my hat goes off to the patent examiner for wading through the morass.

I’m not even sure the company I was employed at still exists.
