Moreover, positions for each node must be carefully recorded using GPS, to facilitate later data analysis. In our case, installing each sensor node took nearly an hour (involving digging holes for the seismometer and antenna mast), not to mention the four-hour hike through the jungle just to reach the deployment site. Myth #2: Sensor nodes are cheap and tiny. The original vision of sensor networks drew upon the idea of “smart dust” that could be literally blown onto a surface. While such technology is still an active area of research, sensor networks have evolved around off-the-shelf “mote” platforms that are substantially larger, more power hungry, and expensive than their hypothetically aerosol counterparts (“smart rocks” is a more apt metaphor).

1 After providing some background about the survey, I will discuss some key findings about how software startup firms use and are affected by the patent system.
