Defense Team Goes to Washington DC

Our Defense Team traveled to Washington DC early this week. Rob, Gene, a Physical Chemist, and I did not stop at the U.S. Capital (Senate) … instead we went to the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO). It was the second meeting over the last three years on Rob’s  published patent application addressing the process for making Dioxytetrahydride gas (or DiTetra Gas). We met with the newest assigned examination officer for our case dating back to 2007. We discussed with her along with one of our patent attorneys, Stewart who has a law practice located across the street from the USPTO, a strategy to continue to move forward towards patent issuance.

Inductees of the National Inventors Hall of Fame – “A Hero is Someone Who Solves Problems”

After the meeting,  Stewart gave us a tour of the National Inventors Hall of Fame and Museum located on the USPTO campus. A celebration of inventors’ gut conviction and persuasion in solving problems. Many before us also walked the hallowed halls of the USPTO in defending their own brilliant ideas (and machines) that ultimately improved the state of mankind.
