I discovered by accident today (I promise I was not doing a "vanity search") that Google now offers a way to search issued US patents.Having found the site, I will admit that I keyed in my first and lastnames and it gave me back a ton of hits. I then remembered that patentscarry my full name so I added my middle name to the search and wasimpressed to see that it found almost all of my issued US patents (Ithink I have about 77 now). I also discovered that some of my issuedpatents have my name spelled wrong (Kevin instead of Kelvin) so a fewdon't show up in the search on my actual name!
If you are curious, you can find my patents, courtesy of Google, here and here.In case you are wondering (having looked at my search results), no, Idid not invent the system for organ placement during surgery!).
