Happy holidays

by Andrew Watson on 19 December 2008

No matter what you celebrate, have a happy holiday season.  We’ll be taking a break here at Tangible IP and with some of the content up on the main ipVA site.  But that doesn’t mean that you don’t get something for the season:

Thanks for reading.
