The section on Romer's theory of technology "excludability" is worth consideration. This is "the degree to which companies can stop other companies from learning their secrets...If technology has become more excludable -- if ideas and technologies are not spreading from company to company the way they used to -- then we’re in trouble." The article goes on to mention/blame overuse of patenting as the catalyst for global competitive hindrance. 
Have efforts to protect trade secrets surpassed their usefulness and instead damaged growth in productivity?
Productivity: It's the difference between wealth and survival.

The American economy has "Productivity: It's the difference between wealth and survival", but the wealth isn't being shared properly and that has prevented a more wide-spread and rapid flow of capital to businesses which need to grow and to new business ideas and to people's savings. It's like a body which has a bad blockage, preventing the flow of blood to its working heart. Without that it doesn't do jumping jacks so easily.

Incredible!
Brooklyn-based artist Kate Clark uses clay to sculpt human faces onto traditional taxidermy forms, covering ;the human features with the animal's skin. She hopes her creations will help people reconnect with the animal kingdom and realize humans and animals are not as different as we think.Click here to read more about Kate Clark and her unique taxidermy artwork

"Other theories have to do with attention, memory and emotion. One idea is that the passage of time speeds up with familiarity. As we get older, things become more familiar to us, and time slips by as a result. There is some evidence that we tend to remember events between the ages of 15 and 25 most vividly because we experience so many new things in that time. A related idea is that we can actually slow down our experience of time through paying attention to the present moment, what people call mindfulness."

The case for the Oxford comma. The omission of the Oxford comma is one of the most puzzling and infuriating aspects of reading.
