Greg
I'm a entrepreneur, a consultant, and an executive who thrives on "marketing innovation".
Interests: In this blog, we'll discuss strategy and marketing innovation -- both innovations in marketing and the marketing of innovations. Topics will cover business models, value capture, profitability, and opportunities from around the technology world and beyond. There will be the occasional off-topic post as well, if something strikes me as particularly blogworthy. Particularly with regards to customer service. I have particular interests in innovation, emerging technology, entrepreneurship, computers, the Internet, consumer products, product usability, open source software, and intellectual property.

From what I understand, it takes about 10-12 hours on a 120V circuit; about half that on a 220V circuit (which is what your dryer and electric range run off of).
I like first to file, because it removes ambiguity. A small company who files a patent application can't be submarined by someone who can demonstrate that they independently invented it first. If you invent something, and want a patent, go file a provisional and protect yourself. This should also help prevent trolls from popping up at the last minute with an infringement suit.
