Interesting editorial / article on patent trolls

I had a tab open to Forbes online from Wednesday when I closed my  
browser (reading up on the Egyptian Coup D'etat) and went to their  
home page this morning (it's quiet at work today) and one of the  
articles they had was a story/editorial about how developers are  
starting to get skittish about patents now...

They mentioned one "bright" spot in the whole patent troll wars was  
that there was now a crowd-sourced information service on prior art to  
help defend against patent trolls. Interesting read, I think.
