Deadline Extension

Many of you have been working hard to finish your Patents for Humanity applications by Aug 31.  We're excited by the quality of submissions so far, and have heard from many more planning to submit by the deadline.  But we've also had numerous requests for more time.

Today the USPTO announces a two-month extension to the Patents for Humanity deadline.  Applications are now due by Oct 31, 2012.  Keep working on those apps!

The official announcement is available here:
