My take on software patents: http://mtgradwell.blogspot.com/2011/07/software-patentstm.html - Yes, I do mention Larry Page's patent for Search Engine web page ranking technology in the same breath as other patents that I consider to be somewhat dubious. Yes, I do understand that sometimes the aim is to be pre-emptively defensive, to patent something so that the opposition can't do so, rather than patent it as a weapon to hold over their heads; but isn't there something inherently ridiculous about a system which renders such techniques necessary? Wouldn't the world be a much nicer place if the whole trillion-dollar (or whatever) edifice could be suddenly swept away as if it had never existed?
software patents(tm). Below is a copy of my entry in Webook's Daily Deal Write-up Challenge, this month's writing challenge. I don't expect it to win or even come close, because the standa...

I've managed to share this terrifying snapshot of myself in my stream without really intending to, but I can't manage to make it my profile photo. I click edit profile - change photo - select photo - crop - set as profile photo - done editing, over and over, but still I get the blue silhouette in the top left corner. I've tried deleting the silhouette, I've tried refreshing/reloading, using a different browser on a different computer ...
Can anyone tell me what I'm doing wrong? Thanks.

Update: never mind. It seems to have been just a time delay thing. It didn't occur to me that it might take a while for my profile to be updated.
Update 2 ... but now the silhouette is back. I just don't get it.
