My first patent that got approved at USPTO
"Techniques for validating and sharing secrets " is my first patent title that got approved at USPTO. Link is here. It is filed in 2008 with co-author as Puthali. More than the title, I have few things to log here:
1. It got approved on May 1, 2012 which is Labour day and holiday. Thats fine.
2. Its under the name of Apple Inc. hmm.. looks like, during the acquisition of Novell, this patent went to them. Thats also fine.
3. It got approved just the next day after I left Novell. My last day at Novell was April 30, 2012. Isn't it a big thing to happen?
4. May 1, 2012 is the only day I was unemployed in my 6+ years career. I feel, this is a big thing.
Why so many coincidences around this patent? What ever, just thought of logging these so that I won't miss them.. :)
