Rethink(IP) Aloud Podcast #5 - Next Generation Electronic Filing of Patent Applications – a conversation with Carl Oppedahl
Posted by J Matthew Buchanan at March 7, 2006 11:43 AM
We're pleased to announce the availability of our latest Rethink(IP) Aloud Podcast - Next Generation Electronic Filing of Patent Applications – a conversation with Carl Oppedahl.
EFS-Web promises to be a simple, flexible, and easy-to-implement e-filing system that, we think, represents a practice-changing technology. It's out with the old system that Carl calls "an abomination" and in with a new, easy-to-use e-filing solution that he expects to lead to higher e-filing rates for patent applications.
Carl is a recognized leader in Patent and Trademark Office Technology. He has maintained the very informative electronic filing listserv for several years and recently served as a key participant in the beta testing of EFS-Web. Carl has kicked the tires on the new system and, to date, has the most experience of anyone in putting the new system to work in private practice.
We hope you listen to this very informative conversation.
The shownotes are below:

Dennis Kennedy is the undisputed King of Legal Technology. He’s a big thinker, a visionary and an overall good guy (he even agreed to don the BK costume at the recent BlawgThink 2005 event in Chicago to pose for this great picture).
Over the last year or so, the three of us have had the opportunity to collaborate with Dennis on various projects. We’ve had a lot of fun (just look at the picture!) and always look forward to our next project with the King.
Soon we’ll be having a roundtable discussion with Dennis about legal blogging. We’re planning on talking about such hot topics as blog experimentation, things we’ve learned, and things we’d do differently if we were starting today. We’re going to record the discussion and post it as a podcast on the rethink(ip) blog…so stay tuned.

I noticed in this week’s BusinessWeek a one-page ad for the magazine’s online content.
The lead in — “Check out some of the new ways you can receive business insight and tools to help you stay ahead.”
Among the new “tools” — RSS feeds and podcasts.
That’s right, BusinessWeek is going 2.0 on us. The BusinessWeek audience, I’m guessing, includes many executive level business folks. Hopefully, BW’s move will prompt more business folks to go 2.0.
And of course, we’re here to help. Want to learn about RSS and/or podcasts? All you have to do is ask…

I couldn't resist. Engadget recently had a post on "How-to: One-click audio news, synced with your iPod in Tiger." Essentially, the instructions teach you how to use a new feature in Mac OS-X "Tiger" called Automator to automatically script extracting the text of a website, converting it to audio (read by your computer) and importing it into your iPod. I hadn't yet had a chance to tinker with Automator so I tried it out on my previous "Psycho" post. Here's the resulting .mp3 file. It is about 1.9 MB in size.
Consider it an example of "podcasting gone bad....very bad."

Our "rethink(ip) aloud" podcast (#3) is up.
In this episode I interviewed Doug Sorocco of the PHOSITA blog about his blog, the lessons he learned, his advice for new bloggers, and his (and all of our) favorite non-IP blogs. In the process he talks about losing his "Google Juice"...no, not the April Fools Google prank...but some 'other' mystery juice.
Here are the show notes:
Doug’s PHOSITA Blog
Dennis Kennedy’s Technology Trends for 2004
Embedded Patent Attorney
Doug mentions “Scoble-land” (referring to Robert Scoble and the “gazillion” blogs he reads every night)
PHOSITA on “who is smarter: lawyers or software engineers”
The Invent Blog post of “My Partial Switch to the Mac”
Non-IP Blogs we like:
Slacker Manager blog
Slacker @ Work Manifesto
Eric Mack Online blog
David Allen’s blog
Matt Homann’s The NonBillable Hour blog
Church of the Customer blog and podcast
Seth Godin’s blog and Seth Godin’s – “All Marketers Are Liars” blog
Seth Godin on “Yak Shaving”
Seth Godin on “Care”
Mark Cuban’s “Blog Maverick blog”

Well, call us slow – but don’t call us stupid.
We finally figured out how to do a valid XML feed with enclosures for the Rethink(IP) Aloud podcasts.
The url is http://feeds.feedburner.com/RethinkipAloud
Simply add this feed to your podcast software of choice (such as iPodder) and the Rethink(IP) Aloud podcasts will be effortlessly streamed for your listening pleasure.
Thanks for all the great feedback – we have been furiously taking notes and promise that Rethink(IP) Aloud Podcast #3 will be even better – of course, it is about my (Doug’s) blogging history and reasons for starting the PHOSITA blog – so it has gotta be great. =)
