We examine variation in the concentration of inventive activity across 72 of North America's most highly innovative locations. In 12 of these areas, innovation is particularly concentrated in a single, large firm; we refer to such locations as "company towns.'' We find that inventors employed by large firms in these locations tend to draw disproportionately from their firm's own prior inventions (as measured by citations to their own prior patents) relative to what would be expected given the underlying distribution of innovative activity across all inventing firms in a particular technology field. ...

Roche this year will probably sign a similar number of deals to 2009’s 65 agreements, said Dan Zabrowski, head of partnering at the Basel, Switzerland-based company. “One question from the biotech industry after the closure of the Genentech deal was whether we’d be out of the licensing business for a while,” said Zabrowski in an interview. “If anything, what we see is ... industry trends, business articles and survey research

that the company will use WebOS, the mobile operating system acquired when it purchased Palm, on smartphones. HP will not be selling any Windows Phone 7 -based devices, Bradley said.

NASA - The Knowledge Notebook — On Not Going It Alone: No ...
One of my father's heroes—and he didn't have many—was Albert Einstein. He often regaled me with stories of the great physicist. He especially liked to dwell on how Einstein, working in solitude in Zurich, wrote five equations that revolutionized physics as it was then understood. Now, much of what he described is true. One of the words he used is less than accurate, though, and that word is “solitude.” When I got older, I was also intrigued by Einstein and read a few biographies written after his death. It turns out that he didn't really work alone. He knew the work of most of the leading physicists in Central and ... technology research, surveys study and trend statistics

What happenend to "Items not in a folder" view? - Google Docs Help
This was a useful view. Along with the disappearance of that view, the publication status of documents no longer appears either as far as I can tell. So, when a new document is created, it can only be found from the Docs Home in the "Items by file type" view and publication status can only be determined by opening the document. Is that correct? It was really useful to see the publication status at a glance. Can that be reinstated?
