The Thompson decision was released on January 1, 1826 and penned by Judge Van Ness who died later that year.  Van Ness was perhaps most famous for being Aaron Burr’s second at Burr’s duel with Alexander Hamilton, but this opinion shows further sign of his character.  Van Ness argues that the U.S. patent system at the time was being overrun by large numbers of trivial inventions. Although it required invention in name, it was really just becoming a replacement to monopolies barred by the Statute ...

Wikipedia’s Surprising Power in Shaping Science: A New MIT Shows How Wikipedia Shapes Scientific Research

If you were in high school or college when Wikipedia emerged, you’ll remember how strenuously we were cautioned against using such an “unreliable source” for our assignments. If you went on to a career in science, however, you now know how important a role Wikipedia plays in even professional research. It may thus surprise you to learn that students still get more or less the same warning about what, two decades later, has become the largest encyclopedia and fifth most-visited web site in the w...

Alexander: Yuka Saso, Lexi Thompson both make history at U.S. Women’s Open

We do not know how aware Lexi Thompson is of the history of U.S. Opens at San Francisco’s Olympic Club. We do know, however, that she became part of an unfortunate historical quirk Sunday afternoon. Four times, the men’s U.S. Open has been played on that historic track. Each time, the leader after 54 holes wasn’t the one still standing at the end. Sunday, in the first U.S. Women’s Open played at Olympic, Thompson led by a shot over Filipino teenager Yuka Saso coming into the round, by five shots...
