It seems that — on the spur of the moment — ProBlogger has declared today Blogger Appreciation Day and has asked readers to email another blogger to let them know that you appreciate something about them. He also suggested writing a post with your words of appreciation.

I have a lot to be appreciative for and, frankly, I don’t always stop and take the time to let people know that I really do appreciate their efforts. I especially appreciate all the great bloggers I’ve had the privilege of interacting with over the years.

I started making a list of all the great blogs but it became a little overwhelming in size. Then, while mulling over my laundry list of people to recognize, I realized that one group of bloggers I really need to thank are those that (without prompting) link to Patent Baristas in the course of discussion on their own blogs.

So, in commemoration of the Semi-Official First Annual Blogger Appreciation Day, here are some of the blogs that have linked to Patent Baristas over the last month or so. I hope that you will take a look at these great sites and maybe find a new gem to add to your list of favorites.

I’m certain that there are more out there that I’ve not seen. Please feel free to leave your thoughts and links in the comments section below.

  3. I`d like to convey my appreciation to Senator Jeff Sessions. What a guy!
    Subject, Senator Jeff Sessions, honesty, justice and integrity. (Tell it like it is)!
    An amendment to the Patent Reform Bill, sponsored by Senator Jeff Sessions, has been withdrawn by the Senator himself. The amendment, received approval from the entire Senate Judiciary Committee. It had the backing of (The Coalition for Patent Fairness) – (fairness by definition – freedom from dishonesty and injustice). The coalition, a group of one hundred and fifty high-tech companies, was, backed by (The Financial Round Table.) The Financial Round Table, represents the countries one hundred largest banks. These banks, now have a serious financial problem. (*They are presently involved in a patent infringement lawsuit*).A finding of willful infringement, will subject the banks to treble damages. (Three times the amount, that a jury would award, as per existing patent legislation.) The potential cost to the banks,? Billions of dollars! If passed, the amendment would have shift a one billion dollar expense, from the banks, to the American tax payer., By Senator Sessions own admission, “I don’t know how (the provision) can be modified to pass a constitutional muster. This Senator was attempting to add, an unconstitutional amendment, to the Patent Reform Bill. I question his motivation. I assure you, It had nothing to do with honesty, justice or a burning desire to perform his civic duty. The Senator stated,” I think this has more to do with lobbyists, than it has to do with merit”. ( Lets call a spade a spade). This action had to do with lobbyists, buying politicians! It had to do with, personal gain! It had to do with a lack of integrity! ( It had nothing to do with merit!)
    (*The case, Data Treasury VS. Wells Fargo, and numerous other banks, was filed on Feb 24,2006 and is still in progress.*)——( Sorry ,their is no room in this equation for banks attempting to buy a new law because they are dissatisfied with existing patent legislation) .These guys believe ,if you have enough money, you can buy your way in or out of anything. How about we try it the old fashion way? Lets resolve this issue in court!
