theodp writes “Ex-Googler and now White House Director of Citizen Participation Katie Stanton is charged with promoting open public dialogues. Last Thursday, Stanton and Google snagged a patent on displaying financial news. Google explains that Stanton’s invention — Interactive Financial Charting and Related News Correlation — will ‘facilitate and encourage the user’s use and understanding of financial information,’ which does jibe nicely with Stanton’s appointment to Obama’s New Media Team. Too bad it’ll be encumbered by a Google patent until 2027.”
