Myhrvold throws a party and surprise: the press was invited!
Somehow I can imagine Richard Vines sitting there eating thinking "Must not mention Lodsys, must not mention Lodsys".  After all he wouldn't want to upset Microsoft's "Guru", he might not get invited back to the next party!  Despite Vines groveling Myhrvold can't help but think we're all scum, except him of course.  After all he's a famous inventor...the patent troll "protection" business.
