On this 118th birthday of American inventor Thomas Alva Edison, the Utah House of Representatives salutes the body’s own holder of U.S. Patent No. 6,348,798, Rep. Bradley Daw.
Although Rep. Daw’s patent, awarded in 2002, didn’t result in anything as significant as Edison’s long-lasting electric light bulb, who wouldn’t bust a button knowing they invented an “Analog to digital voltage measuring device” and have a patent to prove it.
Inventor Daw poses no threat to the Wizard of Menlo Park’s legacy, however, trailing the prolific Edison by 1,092 patents. But who’s counting?
