I am an inventor, or more accurately, an inventaholic! I decided to create a blog that follows me through my trials and tribulations that accompany the creation of a new product.

My blog, http://www.inventaholics.com, is kept up to date with all the information I learn. I am not an expert and offer my personal experience here, not a "how to" guide.

I think I have a lot of information to share and look forward to feedback that can help me make this product a success.

Thank you for reading this.

-Christian Hahn

Hahndds,

Nice blog! It's good to see you are sharing your experience with other inventors. We at Ispot try to better inform inventors so they don't get scammed or get told common misconceptions. In your latest blog entry you talk about documenting your invention in an Inventor's notebook (great!) but then you go on to recommend people copy the page and get it notarized and then mail it to themselves. This is bad advise as it's a common urban myth in inventing. This step does nothing to protect your idea or validate a conception date for an idea. Welcome to Inventor Spot!

Yes, I just learned something!

Thanks for the info, that myth will save me time and money. My goal with the blog is just this, find out what is true and what is just a myth. We all learn from making mistakes much more than by reading how to do it right!

Thanks for reading my blog.

There is so much info here on this site....why did I not find it sooner?

Here is a picture of my invention. If you are not a dentist then you won't recognize it :)

Anyhow, it is a dual sided dental articulating forceps. Let's see if we can create a company and sell them...

That is the next step on http://inventaholics.com ... wish me luck

The point of my blog is to help others and let others help me. Everything I disclose is protected via patent application.

My ideas are just on paper in a notebook.

If you like you can give me access to your secure blog and I can give you my feedback, whatever it is worth. Feel free to have me sign any NDA if you like.

How are you doing with your sun shield?

I have a open website makeworldbetter.com and a secure blog. Linked by the site but require password. And I also keep a inventor notebook.
Do you know your inventor notebook need to have others dated signature on them to serve chronological purpose? I use my blog to serve that purpose.

I think for review purpose, we can help each other on a case by case base. I can help you too, I am willing to sign NDA too.
If you love invention so much, I think you will make to our private think tank in no time. You know we have one on this forum, right?

Thanks

Oh, you also asked about my sunshade.
It's selling, but not as fast as I expected. One of reason is that I don't have any ads out there. And like you, I have a day job keep me busy.... and new ideas keep coming to me.

I will also give you a link to our private think tank http://inventorspot.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=931 Take a look and apply for it. I will sponse you when you do.

Will do
