This recent question on the English Language & Usage Stack Exchange already has an incredibly popular (and thorough) answer.

Area 51 is where new Stack Exchange sites are created. If there isn’t already a Stack site for you (and we’re pushing 100 public sites, at this point), then odds are it’s in the proposal stage in Area 51, waiting for your commitment!

Ask Patents is a new Stack Exchange site launching today that allows anyone to participate in the patent examination process. It’s a collaborative effort, supported by Stack Exchange, the US Patent and Trademark Office, and the Google Patent Search team. It’s very exciting, because it is opening up a process that has been conducted behind closed doors for over 200 years.
Our hope is that Ask Patents will reduce the number of patents mistakenly granted for obvious, unoriginal non-inventions, especially around software, a field that is near and dear to us.
