To whomever is in charge of this "pundits blog" overall:
suggestion: I'd make sure "the pundits" do answer pertinent questions about their posts (or get help if thy are unable to answer themselves). Otherwise, the designation seems to be a joke.
P.S. Good luck with everything, nonetheless! D.
MORE: doesn't this result in some applications being much more scrutinized than others? (which would be unfair) D
re: "the submission of top ten prior art by the pool of experts, who collectively constitute the 'person having ordinary skill in the art,' --> it really depends on who gets involved (and stays involved) with this project and how good a job they do at it ... as volunteers...
it could be well beyond ordinary skill; this would, arguably, result in an "unfair process" given that some applications would be much more scrutinized than others...
P.S. not a bad idea if they could have enough like-volunteers commit to the project say a year in advance so that the "extra help" could be evenly distributed D.
