Happy Star Wars Day!

Posted in General Commentary by Jake Ward on May 4, 2010

May 4th is apparently Star Wars Days.  Who knew?  An interesting article on the unofficial holiday can also be read at Wikipedia here.

Probably a worthy holiday to bring to the attention of our readership, since many inventors, patent practitioners, and examiners likely were fans of the movies growing up.  How many of you out there can point to Star Wars as being an inspiration for pursuing an education in science and/or engineering? 

May the 4th Be With You!

    “Probably a worthy holiday to bring to the attention of our readership, since many inventors, patent practitioners, and examiners likely were fans of the movies growing up.”
    Not to mention the many patents that must have been involved in the making of that movie. I’d guess (or at least hope) that numerous inventors and patent law professionals made a mint — if only indirectly — from the George Lucas epic.
