Our rethink(ip) blog has been up for a week now (officially), and it has been an interesting week. My observations:
- I would have never thought that the blog would have turned out the way it did. It is like we all had quite a bit of built up frustrations (some more than others) with the practice of IP law...and we started the process of unloading that anger/annoyance by posting onto the blog. I'm sure we had 1/2 our audience nodding their heads and the other 1/2 highly annoyed. That's just fine with us.
- I am very encouraged by the comments of other bloggers...thanks.
- I have been pleasantly surprised at the number of my old readers and friends who have, presumably after seeing rethink(ip), e-mailed me personally to check in...to make suggestions...to start old conversations anew. That itself is really cool.
- I am grateful for the contact with the outside world because one of the resolutions I made with myself post-LexThink was that I need to do a better job of connecting with the people around me...sending e-mails, leaving comments on blogs, etc. If you read something on a blog that inspires you, that annoys you, that made you smile...send the blogger an e-mail or leave a comment. Sometimes it can fell like we are all, as Seth would put it, farming ostriches.
