USPTO, Office of Science and Technology Policy announce National Medal of Technology winners


The United States Patent and Trademark Office has a cover story regarding the 2007 National Medal of Technology and Innovation awards at the White House, announced by President Bush and U.S. Commerce Secretary Carlos Guiterrez.

The winners dealt with technologies in packet switching, hereditary metabolic disorders, real time server based operating systems, online trade software, Total Quality Management (of which I took a course in 1994 at work), bioelectrochemistry, lithographic imaging, and aircraft technologies.

The details are in a web article PDF from the Office of Science and Techology Policy, Executive Office of the President, here.

And here, from the Department of Commerce.

The selection process is described on this page.

The USPTO in Alexandria also reports that it has added a new exhibit in its museum, with the byline “Electronic “Portrait Gallery” Brings History of the U.S. Intellectual Property System to Life.” I will visit the exhibit later.
