I wrote yesterday about WikiPatents, a site designed to encourage public discussion of patents. Are the folks at rethink(ip) planning something similar? They are being coy about a new project they have in the works, but Matt Buchanan offered this hint:

“Here’s a big hint….remember the word everyone. The focus of the project is community. Everyone. Everyone can participate, which is exactly the way it should be. We think that the patent reform efforts have left the community at the door, and we’re fixin’ to fix that.”

OK, Matt, you’ve whet our curiousity. We’ll be watching for more details.
