My first patent issue

15052007104, originally uploaded by epredator.

I got back to the office today after talk to some guys in bedfont to find a parcel there.
It is my framed first page of my first patent issue. We do a lot of patents at work. Usually its the filing of the patent that is the important (getting paid, getting points) part. Once in the system the company may well use it, or abandon in in all sorts of ways.
This one however managed to get through and is a real genuine patent.
It was a great idea around representing what people are doing in a real space or community. It was very web2.0 but the original file was back in 2002. Though the idea started in 2000.
It was also a joint one with Rob Lawrence, who used to be our creative director which makes it extra cool.
