I'd love to respond to this, Daniel, this weekend, and to all in that it may 
generate a conversation about the patent process in context, and I would love to 
hear more about your invention!   More to come soon!

It's just my (unknowing) sense, but isn't this coordination of
metadata the exact thing that inventions like Freebase are trying to

To Mike particularly, Wow, thanks for the excellent, informing
response. I didn't realize it was for something patented or in search

So this is (UD-DNS) is something that you were working on for your own self?
Just wondering.
I have (what I feel to be, though I am probably way out of my league),
an invention that I have been considering for a long while now, along
somewhat similar lines, though different. I think it might be
transcending in the financial realm. (Like we need it...)

I was going to write to you off list, but in retrospect I thought
perhaps it would flesh out the conversation if I asked it here. If you
could, perhaps you could talk about the parameters or concerns for
going through such a "patent search/application," etc. for such a
device, I'd be most interested.

If you'd like to respond off-list, that'd be fine, too.

Great weekend, all.
