Hi! I'm Dane Carlson, and welcome to the Business Opportunities Weblog. I've been publishing this website, by myself, and sometimes with the help of others for over twelve years now. You'll notice two things about this site right away:
According to The New York Times, in “Endpaper: Patents”, creations patented in 2009 are sorted and classified by labels like “When Life Isn’t Exciting Enough,” “Reinventing the Wheel,” and “Department of Questionable Judgment.”
Inventions include a bacon comb, an inflatable Christmas tree, water-draining shoes and a retractable chopstick.
Maybe you’ve had an idea for an invention you’d like to patent, or maybe you’ve just identified a need that an enterprising inventor could meet. Tell us about your idea, or describe a need, large or small, that you wish a 2010 invention could address. Put them in the comments.
