I am filled with sadness at the loss of Stu Kaback. I was honored to know him and call him friend during the last fifteen years. It is difficult to write this since I still can't believe he is gone. When he retired Stu told us that he would be taking a break from the patent information world but deep down I kep...
I am currently the PIUG Immediate Past-Chair (2012-2014) after serving as PIUG Chair (2010-2012).
As a member of PIUG I have also accomplished the following:
- Chaired the Executive Director Task Force
- Participated as a member of the Strategic Planning Committee
- Was one of three individuals responsible for the incorporation of PIUG
- Suggested the creation of the Brian Stockdale Award and have participated in the committee to select the award winner since the inception of the award
I am Director of IP Analytics at 3LP Advisors where I work with clients to help them realize their business goals through the strategic use of IP. 3LP can be thought of as an organization that provides corporate strategic advisory services with the intention of engaging in patent brokerage transactions. We have been in the center of efforts to create a global IP Marketplace where patent assets in particular can be freely traded, sold and licensed.
If you are interested in 3LP and the business, please see the web site at www.3lpadvisors.com.
I am also one of the instructors for the PERI course on Patent Information, recently transferred to PIUG, where I teach on the subject of Patent Analysis.
While at Chemical Abstracts I was fortunate to work with some very talent people and have three products that I was associated with:
- STN AnaVist - www.cas.org/products/anavist
- SubScape for SciFinder - www.cas.org/products/scifindr/subscpe
- Analyze Plus - www.cas.org/support/stnexp/seehow/analyzeplus.html
As a bit of whimsy but for a practical purpose, I also created the term Patinformatics, a term that is still widely used today; see Patinformatics Group Created on LinkedIn.

I told myself I was not going to use a song for the title of this post since it seemed inappropriate for such a somber note but then I remembered who I was writing about. On a number of levels Happy Trails reminds me of Bullit...
To provide service to others is considered a nobel endeavor. This is true when we are talking about military service, a religious service and even civil service. In many of these cases we consider service to be synonymous with selfless, an opportunity or situation to give something to others without expecting anythin...
