Awareness Research Peer-to-Patent is a pilot project in collaboration with the US Patent and Trademark Office. It was established in 2007 and recently extended/expanded to June 15, 2009. It is focused on helping the patent office perform high-quality examinations of pending patent applications by enlisting the public to help find and explain prior art.... Peer-to-Patent uses social software features to facilitate discussion amongst groups of volunteer experts. Users can upload prior art references, participate in discussion forums, rate other user submissions, add research references, invite others, and more. This helps the examiners focus their attention on the submission(s) of prior art that have the highest relevance to an application.

Beth Simone Noveck, Law Professor, and Director, Institute for Information Law and Policy, New York Law School launched the Peer to Patent: Community Patent Review project.

Incentives for submitting an application to the project include:
Expedited review. Public review begins one month after publication of the application. Review continues for four months, after which the patent examiner conducts an expedited examination of the patent application.
Potentially stronger patents. If Peer-to-Patent review works as expected, patents that survive the process have already undergone considerable scrutiny and will be less at risk of a successful challenge later.
Public service. Applicants can feel they are contributing to a valuable experiment in new models and technologies for public decision-making.

"The Peer-to-Patent Web site is built using open source technologies (RoR, MySQL, Linux OS). Hosted database/web servers, load balancers, and interactive features (threaded discussions, e-mail alerts, RSS feeds, social bookmarks, video clips, tagging, ratings, and more)."

“Ironically, the robots actually critique
the very culture of which they are byproducts . . .
Every time something ships there’s a piece of
Styrofoam to keep it safe and sound . . .
I really look at these pieces as being
mechanical and robot in nature.
The result is a pretty poignant statement about what we buy . . .
and what we throw away.”

...the first open-source museum collection - is a preservation repository
and online database of born-digital art. This next-generation cultural works project,
currently in the planning phase, also provides a testbed for developing innovative legal,
economic, and cultural frameworks for the digital arts.

Department of Modern Culture and Media

...the museum is entirely in the public domain
(add, modify, or remove art, likewise, elements of the building).
Our goal is to reimagine definitions of art, artist,
curator, museum, culture, and open source.
This project is underway in a virtual reality called Second Life.

Seeding Ground "WCI student isolates microbe that lunches on plastic bags" (via The Record)
Synopsis: Daniel Burd's stew contains ground-up plastic in a mix of landfill dirt, yeast and tap water. After experimenting with different temperatures and configurations, he isolated the microbial remediators. He discovered that it biodegrades over 40% of the weight of plastic bags in less than three months. The only waste is water and a bit of carbon dioxide.

"This is a huge, huge step forward... We're using nature to solve a man-made problem."
Daniel Burd, 16-yr-old junior, Waterloo Collegiate Institute & Canada-Wide Science Fair winner

Additionally, in re-meditation, continuing to reduce our consumption
of packaged goods and non-reusable baggage
remains a high priority.

How to help limit the ever-growing patch of garbage floating in the Pacific Ocean:
• Limit use of plastics when possible.
• Use a reusable bag when shopping.
• Take your trash with you when you leave the beach.
• Make sure trash bins are securely closed.
