Say what you will about patents. The patent system is undoubtedly a unique one.
Last week, a few patents showed up on my virtual doorstep with many Dwolla names from the past and present.
I printed them out and read them to jog my memory. It was a fun throwback to some of the challenges we were working through at the time. It was also fun thinking about just how good the team members are working on some of these challenges.
Who knows what life this particular work takes on, but I’m glad we did the exercise together. If nothing else, working through a patent application is a unique way to force yourself to think about and communicate. I enjoy that part of the process.
