My week one observations

Posted by Stephen M. Nipper at April 15, 2005 08:11 AM

Our rethink(ip) blog has been up for a week now (officially), and it has been an interesting week.  My observations:

  1. 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.
  2. I am very encouraged by the comments of other bloggers...thanks.
  3. 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 make start old conversations anew.  That itself is really cool. 
  4. 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.

Thanks again...
