Hi Angie, thanks for this AMA.

Your innovative and out-of-the-box thinking style has resulted in more than 25 patented inventions in the US and China. I've heard the word "patent" several times but only have a blurred understanding of it and I'm sure some others do also. What does patent inventions actually mean?

Also, how did you go about getting a patent?

Lastly, what inspired all 25 patents you got?

A patent is basically an exclusive right, granted by a country, to make, use, and sell an invention.

I got into patenting while working for IBM, who has a very extensive IP catalog.

My inventions are on things like collaborative software, virtual worlds, smarter planets, and software development enhancements.

I'll also be giving a talk on the Patent Process including how to come up with ideas at In Streaming Color. Tune in!
