What’s up with this?

why is it that when i develop a good design, others try to patent it?  i built this design for a different government agency (long before secure symbologies inc), and now i find that this individual is attempting to patent my work?  http://www.freepatentsonline.com/20100169639.pdf

well, you might as well have it now, i don’t know if the patent will be granted to them (to him really), but if it’s not – you should take advantage of the design.  this is a design that secures the data in a “true” data vault, using the data vault modeling components as the heart of an operational data warehouse.  in other words, the data vault model finally lives up to its’ name: data vault, and offers a secure place where information can be “locked away.”

secure symbologies is the company i built the e-pedigree track & trace for, bill jeffries (listed on the patent) was their cto.  i don’t know if the company even exists anymore.  it would be a shame to see this patent go through after all the work i put in.  it’s the design that put ssi (secure symbologies) on the map after all, it’s the design behind the e-pedigree track and trace drug manufacturing system i am sharing with you on the blog here.

i hope you enjoy the design, it’s worth a run-through (or at least a once-over).  it’s a systems architecture, the data model i built for them is intellectual property, that i will see if i can post openly.

if you want to see the in-roads that the data vault made in track & trace, just type in the following phrase to google:

“data vault” e-pedigree

it should garner some interesting results.
