The U.S. Patent and Trademark Office last week opened a new exhibit honoring Steve Jobs at its museum in Alexandria, Virginia. Located in the atrium of the office's Madison Building headquarters, the free museum offers interactive exhibits, a portrait gallery and a theater.

The Steve Jobs exhibit consists of 30 giant iPhone-like display panels, most of which display the front pages from over 300 patent and trademark filings that bear Jobs' name as inventor or co-inventor. The remaining panels offer a brief description of the exhibit and photos of Jobs.

“This exhibit commemorates the far-reaching impact of Steve Jobs’ entrepreneurship and innovation on our daily lives,” said Under Secretary of Commerce for Intellectual Property and Director of the USPTO David Kappos. “His patents and trademarks provide a striking example of the importance intellectual property plays in the global marketplace.”

Located in the atrium of the Madison Building, the exhibit features more than 300 of the patents that bear the name of the iconic innovator along with many of the trademarks that have given Apple its instantly recognizable identity around the world. The display gives insight into the visionary commitment Jobs gave to each of the products and designs he influenced during his time with Apple, the company he co-founded at the age of 21 with his friend and fellow computer enthusiast Steve Wozniak.

The Steve Jobs exhibit at the USPTO Museum runs through January 15, 2012.

Yeah.

The Lincoln Memorial. Mount Rushmore. Displays of van Gogh and other museum showings paying homage. The Holocaust Museum ("get over it world"?). On and on and on and on.

You're young, aren't you?

It's cool, but I'm thinking it's probably not a good use of public money at a time when the US Government is going through a very public and painful debt crisis and tens of millions of Americans are out of work.

Let's work on cutting federal spending and fixing the economy before commissioning the next expensive Steve Jobs memorial display at the Department of Education, OK?

In simple English. The Museum is run by a private nonprofit organization.
