Groklaw's Response to the USPTO's Request for Suggested Topics for Future Discussion & A Supplement ~pj

This seems to cover the topic "Why computer programs should not be
patentable"; but it does not cover some of the other
less than completely rational patents out there. My ageing
monitor is rectangular in shape with rounded corners. It does not strike me as
innovative to make a smaller rectangle
and call it patentable! Not to mention that the Sumerians were using rectangular
"tablets" 5000 years ago! It drives me rabid the things that are
dreamed up and called "break through" and granted the status of a
patent.

Wow indeed.

Your Pierce-> Peirce correction wording to me made it appear as if the name
had been spelled incorrectly many times.
Quote: "Nowhere in Groklaw's response...".
Excuse me, I copied the whole of the original (March 10) article text into Libre
Office, and the name came up once. Once.
I also copied (20 minutes ago) the whole of the comments text to that article
and searched for the same text. No hit.
Of course I do not know if you read the March 10 article, but from minute 1 you
were free to post corrections... If you did (I didn't find it, but I cannot
claim infallability), I apologise for my reaction to your comment
here.

With regards to the section: "A sign in the Peircean tradition has three
elements. The physical object..."

Can we get some background as to where this information came from? Bibliography
or otherwise.

The reason I ask this is because the link "Peircean tradition" doesn't
lead to information using the same terms as are depicted in the "Triadic
Sign" image. The (limited) literature I have on Peirce also uses different
terms for what seemingly covers this triadic relationship amongst what, in my
literature, are called Representamen (Sign vehicle), Interpretant (Interpretant)
and Object (Referent).
