Blawg Review doesn't shy from tackling Hedy subjects.

Stephen Albainy-Jenei hosts Blawg Review #289 at his Patent Baristas blog. The occasion is Inventor's Day (in Germany, Austria, and Switzerland anyhow); the subject is the beautiful and intelligent actress Hedy Lamarr, on whose birthday the occasion is held. Lamarr is best known outside patent circles as an actress during Hollywood's Golden Age; within patent circles, she's recognized as the co-inventor of frequency-hopped spread spectrum communications.

Perhaps as an homage to the chaotic process of invention, this week's Blawg Review presents its links "in no particular order"; highlights include ensuring "informal" inventors' access to the patent system, considering the link between trademarks and innovation, and realizing that there's no idea too stupid to patent.

UK family law blogger Familoo will host next week's Blawg Review #290 at her Pink Tape blog.
