Thanks for all the feedback on our IP map project. It can be found on our website under the "Resources" tab. We have taken all of the personnel changes that we have reported over the years and built them into a layer on this map. Go to the top left corner and click on the button there and you can turn the layers on and off. The stars are the personnel changes layer. We have simply taken our past newsletters as the source. Sometimes we have had to make some arbitrary decisions about how we grouped the reported changes but we have tried to be as consistent as possible. The stars are color coded by number of changes reported. Maybe this will be an interesting look for you. Maybe someone can look at whether there is a correlation between star color and IP policy for example.Its all just to promote our thinking about what works and what doesn't for us. Your suggestions about what the next layer should be would be welcome.Maybe it will be revenues as reported in the AUTM survey averaged over the 10 years we've been in business? Just kidding of course but your input IS welcome indeed. We want to be useful to you.

Please look for the next newsletter in six months with the changes that have occurred in the meantime.
