Here's a Denver Post update from last week, on the U.S. Patent office in Denver: Opening of Permanent U.S. Patent and Trademark Office could be Delayed, although it appears, that they have already begun operating in temporary offices. Which is a good thing.
Last July, I was able to attend the original announcement of the U.S. Patent and Trade Office coming to Denver.It was one of those emails inviting all the mayors from the Metro Mayor's Caucus to show up for an official announcement tomorrow. If I'm not busy and I can work it in, it's always good to seize the opportunity, and connect with other mayors at these events.
For me, it was interesting to hear Denver Mayor, Michael Hancock, describe the moment when he was in a car for 10 minutes with President Obama, and he only had time to ask for help on one or two things. I can't explain exactly why, but I always feel inspired on my way home after hearing Mayor Hancock. I guess he seems to bring big things (like a US Patent Office) down to a personal level.
Here's how the Denver Business Journal originally reported the story: Leader of patent-office push says Denver's win will spur tech, jobs
