future of ip clinics

I’m out in DC, attending an IP Clinics meeting. Interesting how there are so many “access” clinics now, dedicated to small business / entrepreneurship — helping people get IP. Will the policy-oriented clinics be outweighed by the transactional clinics? Are we even the same kinds of clinics? I’m not sure.

update 2006/2/7: I should have posted this a while back, but one of the outcomes of this meeting was the nascent IP Clinics Network, which now has a website — ipclinics.net . Like any other network of nonprofits & public interest & public services orgs, it needs a lot of work, but it’s a good start.

who gives how much to whom

Fundrace.org – See who contributes how much to whom. Depressing how most contributions to Bush seem to be $1000 and $2000. No wonder the man has quadrillions of dollars.

the new website

Insomnia, maybe. This is the first personal website that I’ve developed since, umm, 1994/95 — a website I took down in 1996/97 and haven’t used since. Hundreds (maybe thousands) of web pages, for personal use, projects, & other folks, but none about “me” in years and years.
