Intellectual Ventures and Patent Aggregators - Jeff Hartgarten

Last week Jeff Hartgarten, a student at the University of Minnesota, sent an email asking if  I could talk to him about patent aggregators. Soon after we had an interesting discussion, and Jeff published the article: U Invests in a 'Patent Troll' - Several schools worldwide either invest in or license patents through Intellectual Ventures. I noticed that when Google patent alerts listed the article. We probably don't agree on whether or not Intellectual Ventures is a benefit to society, but I appreciate Jeff interviewed quite a few people and took the time to listen to me. Jeff, good luck to you, I expect you will do well!
