Inane patents and other things

Noticed recently that the anti SOA 2.0 petition crossed 400. That reminds me, this is a must see if you haven’t already – an approved US patent “Method of exercising a cat” using a laser pointer. No kidding!
A method for inducing cats to exercise consists of directing a beam of invisible light produced by a hand-held laser apparatus onto the floor or wall or other opaque surface in the vicinity of the cat, then moving the laser so as to cause the bright pattern of light to move in an irregular way fascinating to cats, and to any other animal with a chase instinct.
Wow. Hope I don’t get sued for quoting that :) As someone noted it took two people to come up with that one.
I also have great admiration for
whoever Assaf who wrote this piece “SOA integration with Flickr and del.icio.us“. Read it if you haven’t already. Digest it. Memorize every word. This will answer all your questions on SOA, ROI, Web 2.0 and SaaS. Really.
