After leaving Microsoft, he has used his considerable fortune to fund scientific research of all kinds - archaeological excavations, a radio telescope, a new engine. He has a company called Intellectual Ventures that funds inventors and buys their inventions and patents. His company holds more than 20,000 patents. And every year, the company files 500 patent applications.For pete's sake, can't CNN get even the most basic facts correct? It's 30,000 not 20,000 patents. What a puff piece.
