I tend not to agree with Microsoft patent boss Horacio Gutierrez on very much when it comes to patents or Microsoft's patent strategy over the past few years. But I have to admit I'm fascinated by his plan to take the lessons of the book Moneyball and try to apply them to patents. Apparently, he's got a team of folks in Redmond, trying to put together data and stats the help judge the value of a patent. I'd be surprised if anything really accurate comes out of it (there are just too many variables and wildcards), but it is an intriguing idea. I wonder if he'll patent it...
