I am retiring on Thursday 11 April, and so this is a farewell post to my readers.
It has been great fun researching and writing over 500 posts for this blog over the years -- a privilege, really. I hope you have enjoyed reading them. I hope never to lose the excitement that good product design ought to bring, together with the essentials of how to manufacture, protect and market the products. Never forget that they create jobs, too.
I intend to stay active in the field, and will have my own blog on inventions, searching and protection, while working part-time as what I suppose could grandly be called a consultant librarian in that field. One advantage of an unusual surname is that it will be easy to find me on the Internet.
A British Library blog on business and innovation will take the place of this one.
