Dept: don't-want-to-be-Jerry-Springer-but, topic: Patents

   [1]jbc writes "The O'Reilly Network is running a [2]debate between
Tim
   O'Reilly and Patent Office Director Q. Todd Dickinson. Among the
   highlights is Tim's call for a Slashdot-like forum to serve as a
means
   of identifying prior art." A bare-knuckled debate, not as in-depth as
   I'd have liked, but it's good to know Diskinson's perspective.
Someone
   else mentioned a [3]list of educational patents on computer assisted
   instruction techniques some of which go back to the 1960s.
