Last night I received an award for our innovative cookstove design and implementation. The "Licensing Executive Society International", third annual meeting "Global Technology Impact Forum" sponsored the event and award. This conference - Society is primarily patent lawyers, and IP professionals. At one level I am a "fish out of water", as much of our work is "open source". However, our Generation 2 cookstove will have IP (intellectual property-patents - licensing) associated with it. Beyond the award the networking has led to the potential of receiving probono legal IP work. And a representative from the Mexican Federal Finance Minister's office is here, so now we have a great connection with the new Federal government, for several funding opportunities.
