This month the late co-founder and CEO of Apple was honored by the National Inventors Hall of Fame to join a small group of elite inventors. Steve Jobs had just as much credentials as an inventor as he did a marketing genius. He has a whopping 263 patents at the United States Patent and Trademark Office since 1976. Most of us would be happy with one or two.
The National Inventors Hall of Fame maintains an annual tradition of selecting Inductees through a panel of experts in the fields of science, technology, engineering and patents.
In addition to Jobs, nine other inventors were included in the list of new inductees. Four of these inductees made their mark, like Jobs, in the fertile field of computer and information technology.
Barbara Liskov at MIT was recognized for her innovative research in the design of computer programming languages. Lubomyr Romankiw and David Thompson, both of IBM, invented the first practical magnetic thin-film storage heads.
The National Inventors Hall of Fame honors individuals who conceive, patent and advance the great technological achievements since the birth of our nation. If you are anyone you know wants to join the list and has the next “BIG” idea, please contact us at New Product Consulting.
