We are pleased to announce another first for Rethink(IP). Tomorrow, for the first time, we will have a guest author on the blog.
Several weeks ago, Nipper met someone who thinks like we do. “He gets it” is how Steve described his meeting with Bill Meade, President of Basic IP Management, to Doug and Me on a late night Skype session after his lunch with Bill in Boise.
Bill does get it. So we got him.
Prior to founding Basic IP Management, Bill served as the laser printer patent portfolio manager at HP and played a major role in that company’s famous “Invent” campaign. He’s a big thinker with big ideas on the invention process and patent life cycle.
We’re happy to have Bill involved with the blog and hope that you enjoy his post. Please join us in welcoming Bill to Rethink(IP).
Later tonight we’ll describe a project that Bill implemented at HP that met with huge success. Tomorrow, we’ll post Bill’s guest article, which will focus on proactive invention management.
Whoa. Invention management? Proactive? Yep. I told you he gets it.
