If we're looking for a way into the technology transfer people at TCD, I
wonder if Iona (http://www.iona.com/) might be onside.
They specialise in systems integration based on Open Standards (Corba,
J2EE etc) running on a variety of platforms including Linux -- so
potentially directly threatened by software patents.
According to the page at TCD,
"Iona is a prestigious software company which was developed from
research into distributed systems at Trinity in 1991. Dr Chris Horn, a
former lecturer in the Department of Computer Science, serves as
Managing Director. Iona was launched on NASDAQ in February 1997 and has
over 500 employees worldwide".
