For those with time to spare this weekend here are some interesting reads:
1. A Summary of the progress RealNames was making as a business.
2. RealNames approved Patent “Navigating network resources based on metadata” from November 2000. Filed February 1998
3. Microsoft’s approved Patent for a Keyword system – November 2001. Filed June 1998. This patent was further amended in August 2001 and was published as an application for an amended patent on March 14th 2002. None of this was disclosed to RealNames by Microsoft – it came to light this week.
