About our Banner

Posted: November 17th, 2009

Have you been wondering what the picture in our banner is?

It is part of a patent drawing from Thomas Edison’s patent on an electric fluorescent lamp.

Why did we pick this picture? Well, almost every website, conference, book, etc. about patents and innovation seems to have a light bulb as decoration. Our image refers to that tradition, but adds a little twist.

More information on fluorescent lamps can be found on Wikipedia.

You can see the patent here.
