Information on Patent Law

Robert, over at the Daily Pequod, met with a patent attorney the other day and got some really interesting advice for anyone who's considering patent law. Now, I don't know for sure that I want to do patent law. It seems like a good fit with the engineering degree. On the other hand, I'm ready to be inspired by something new when I start school. And, I have the counter-example of my dad to think about. He stumbled into his specialty after about 2 years working at the Maryland State's Attorney's office and it's turned into an extremely successful career for him. So, I guess I'd say I'm going in with a plan, but ready for serendipity.
