My Husband, the Inventor

We had a very short 24-hour trip to San Jose yesterday and today to celebrate a fantastic event--Kevin has been awarded a patent! The patent is for a feature he developed in GoLive, the Adobe product that helped you create web pages. Ironically, it takes so long for patents to work their way through the government system (Kevin's "hometown" is listed as Morgan Hill on the patent itself--we haven't lived in Morgan Hill since 2002), GoLive isn't even being released anymore. However, the feature was a very good one (I'll let him describe it if he wants to--go over to his blog and put pressure on him hotels in norfolk) and really enhanced GoLive.

I'm so proud of my Inventor! He even got new business cards, a window decal for his office (the dogs next door seem unimpressed as of yet), and an ergonomically-designed but rather small coffee mug. In case you were wondering, there wasn't a financial bonus upon the awarding of the patent. Because they take so long (I believe this one took 4 years) he received a bonus upon filing. He's got some other patents in the works so he's on his way to Super Inventor!

Did you see the reports of the fire in Henry Coe State Park? Isn't that right behind your Morgan Hill home?
