Thought this might be a fun image to put in.
As one whose profession involves the production of content, here’s an article that grabbed my attention.

Here’s one quote that stood out: “Thousands of executives and companies caught in a software patent system that federal judges, economists, policy makers and technology executives say is so flawed that it often stymies innovation.” To this I say, no no: It stymies innovation. “Stymie innovation” is not the exception- it’s the rule!

This has to stop.
