Marketing, backup thousands of computers backing up 1% to 20% of their drives
- I have an idea for backing up computer hard drives, over the
Internet/LAN/WAN, by just backing up from 1% to 20% (for most
computers) of the drive, even over very slow dial-up connections,
very quickly. Over the past few months, I have written a solid
client/server based working model. It allows people to back up their
computers for a few dollars a year. It has been completely written
and tested. I have undertaken months of research on this topic, and I
can't find any sort of software product that comes close to
the efficiencies that I believe I have discovered. This includes a
week of research at the United States Patent Office. I have filed for
a provisional patent here in Washington DC, and therefore I have one
year to get my "real" utility patent.
I know it is a good idea because whenever I describe how this is done
to technically inclined people, as soon as they "get it" (it
couple of minutes) their jaws drop, and they start uttering words
like brilliant and awesome. I believe this to be the "holy
system backup. The idea is based on a mathematical theory that won
the Nobel peace prize several years ago. It has been presented to
several "experts" including a few CIO (Chief Information
types, and professors at non-profit institutions and universities.
Nobody has been able to "break" the underlying principles,
hours of Q&A.
I have been a successful independent computer consultant for 20 years.
I am currently in a bind, in that, when a person is explained the 2
combined methodologies behind the system, the idea just jumps right
out, and is readily understood by anybody with a good technical
background. Apparently, nobody (that I know of) has combined these 2
areas of information science, and applied it to information
replication. This is why I have been weary of approaching any large
private sector firms (market makers) with this idea. I am afraid they
will just take it and run with it, leaving me in the their dust.
The application is also thought to be an invaluable investigative
tool for the FBI/CIA/DOJ/DOD as a potential forensics tool (home land
I know that most all computers will someday utilize this technology
to backup. Technologies that provide this scale of efficiencies are
always adopted, over the course of time, as technology progresses.
The only question is, who is going to do it, when will this evolution
take place and will I be involved with it?
My only other possibilities are putting out a public domain white
paper about the system, and hope to book some billable hours off the
exposure this might bring. Or, wait for the system to be discovered
by a firm that has the resources and exposure to implement it, and
then sue them for years, over patent infringement, and make a group
of lawyers rich.
I can't get past the gatekeepers, to get a hearing by the
makers, because the decision makers don't know who I am, and the
gatekeepers don't care, or understand, what I may have.
