Welcome to patentECO

Today, Way Better Patent inaugurates our new patentECO blog.  patentECO will appear here on The Inkling.
patentECO is Way Better Patents’ ecosystem of clean technology innovation, as represented by patents issued by the US Patent & Trademark Office (USPTO), the European Patent Office (EPO), and other international patent organizations comprising the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO).
patentECO will review cleantech inventions and the patents that define them and the role patents play in the cleantech ecosystem.  We will review cleantech news items from an intellectual property (IP) and innovation perspective. We will focus on seven major categories within the clean technology ecosystem: air, industry; energy; water; resource extraction and harvesting, transportation and agriculture. We’ll take forays into other corners of the cleantech ecosystem as our interest leads us.
Michael Bowman, the Managing Editor of patentECO, is leading this effort.  Mike has decades of experience in clean technology, intellectual property analysis and management, innovation, and high tech knowledge management solutions. We will bring a unique perspective to the clean technology discussion.
Way Better Patents builds useful, easy to understand, engaging applications that transform complex data into compelling and expressive information. We are passionate about what we do, about providing real access to information in ways that help you gain insight and create knowledge. Way Better Patents applications are tools for exploration, tools for discovery, tools for analysis so you can explore, discover, analyze and execute — information you can use.
