Decades of 60 hour weeks, novel innovation and incredible problem-solving challenges for global endeavors.
As a VENTURE SOLUTIONIST he has produced over 150 first-ever inventions.
He has been awarded dozens of federal United States Government issued patent awards as "first-to-invent" for creating seminal products and services in use by populations around the globe.
The United States Patent Office has ranked him with top honors as a seminal inventor and designer/engineer.
He has directed teams of up to 2000 people in projects as large as 200,000+ live attendees across over 2 million square foot locations and national media broadcast outreach programs that went global on the web. His technologies and programs are long-game solutions designed to improve the course of global social development. Often, he and his team 'slow drip' and seed a technology, or new solution, into populations and nations around the globe, via open-source or partner-development.
He has designed, built and deployed hundreds of working prototypes and reference designs of his inventions, for his clients and employers:
For example, to get everybody onto "the internet", he designed, built, launched, patented and deployed the Internet's first full-screen video and music on-demand world-wide full-screen broadcasting network.
For this he received written White House commendations, extensive seminal federal patent awards as "First-To-Invent" and the verification that Google copied his technology, business model and architecture to build YouTube!
As we all know, movies and music drew most of the main-stream global population to the web. Federal records, emails, NDA's, contracts, State records, and other evidence, has proven that he started the ball rolling as the first to deliver global web broadcasting in full-screen, full-color HD on home computers and PDA's.
He sold his first set of media patents to a very well known software billionaire.
His roots are basic. As a kid he was a cowboy and played with Amish kids and farmer's children. He has always given a percentage of his time and assets to charity and community service annually. He is usually helping many different community service groups, concurrently, in the areas of digital human rights, medical research, education, anti-corruption and animal rescue centers.
In the 1970's he began a peer-to-peer community cooperative development group called "Production Works".
At the end of the 70's the City of San Francisco was giving them entire mountain tops to operate projects on and the largest open-space areas in the region had already had massive undertakings produced on them by Scott and his team.
His work with the Bay Area Cooperative projects: "The Farm" and "The Well" expanded that workforce. In 2021, his global Ateliar of thousands of engineers, designers, programmers, operatives, technicians and specialists can come together, "Mission Impossible"-style, to handle any challenge that they are assigned. They often engage in altruistic efforts purely for community service.
Congress awarded him a multi-million dollar Congressional citation (listed in the Congressional FEDERAL REGISTER) to build America’s next solution for a major national next-generation energy program.
He and his team completed the government project on budget and on time unlike Solyndra, Abound and others.
His projects have been featured in major news articles:
You will certainly have heard of the projects he has worked on, but he tends to stay behind-the-scenes and avoids any social media presence. He has built well known items featured in famous feature films and TV series. His projects have been in many magazine articles.
He has produced some of the largest public events, including The massive Bay To Breaker's Footstock Concerts, network TV showcase home building projects, the Lights project viewed by millions, the logistics for the San Francisco Blues Festival (produced in co-operation with The National Park Service), the build-out of Fort Mason Center for public events and more... He has hundreds of letters of reference and commendation from well known media, political and tech personalities.
He has created, launched and sold multiple start-up companies.
Among some of his ventures:
- He built an off-grid, high tech recreational vehicle system that used the same insulation as that used by the International Space Station.
- He produced two famous national demonstration homes that were on reality TV shows. He is often involved in modern building projects.
- He built a massive digital peer-to-peer mesh networked global open-source public news network.
- He built The first disaster recovery mobile App technologies for the Japanese Tsunami disaster efforts. Steve Jobs personally helped the project.
SCOTT WAS THE PRODUCER AND ORIGINATOR OF OVER 52 PRODUCED SOFTWARE APPLICATIONS, MANY OF THEM THE FIRST-OF-THEIR-KIND:
- He also built the San Francisco rapid-response social trauma center for the Loma Prieta Earthquake.
- A recent federal hearing at the U.S. Patent Office confirmed the fact that he built the first online social network before Yahoo or Mark Zuckerberg did.
His high IQ brilliance can guarantee any employer or contracting party at least three, or more, solution options for any problem he is tasked with. His futurism predictions have always had the highest accuracy in the nation.
SCOTT HAS LETTERS OF REFERENCE AND COMMENDATIONS FROM OVER ONE HUNDRED WELL KNOWN PARTIES INCLUDING:
He is inventor-of-record on the many seminal issued federal patents he holds. Sony Pictures mentions him and his team by name in their patents which were sold to AT&T/DirecTV. Billions of people use technologies that the federal patent office has certified he invented before anyone else did.
He reports, as a bi-partisan adviser, to the United States Congress, the European Union, the FTC and other federal agencies on tech, security, anti-trust law and anti-corruption law.
He has consulted to, had staff employed by, had commendations from, or worked with, every White House, for over 30 years, from Reagan to Biden as seen in news videos, press photos and commendations.
He has won multiple national industry awards.
He has been on network TV news many times as a spokesperson for background on news topics.
He is an ordinary person who has done well at accepting extraordinary challenges. He says that "anybody can do" what he does "if they just put their mind to it and persevere".
His latest development interests range from quantum entanglement amplifiers for global communications sharing to CRISPR-CAS9 processes for medical innovation.

Scott Douglas Redmond has won numerous federal patent awards, Congressional awards, innovation awards, federal grants, commendations and has received hundreds of letters of references from top policy leaders, corporate executives, past clients and employers. A "patent" is a filing of a claim with the U.S. Government. You 1.) file a notice that you have invented something. Then 2.)the U.S. Government files a notice back to you saying "nope, no you didn't, prove it...3.)" Then you file things that prove that you were the first, original, inventor of that thing. 4.) Then the U.S. Government uses it's entire compliment of investigation and research tools to confirm if you were really the inventor. You can't just "pay some money and get a patent". In those rare cases when 5.) the U.S. Government awards you a patent, it means that the entire U.S. Government has decided to stand behind you and say: "Yep, we checked it out, this guy really is the one who invented this thing!". Getting a patent is a big deal because it means that years of federal investigation has confirmed that you really were the one who created that thing...

With an Mw magnitude of 6.9 and a maximum Modified Mercalli intensity of IX (Violent), the shock was responsible for 63 deaths and 3,757 injuries. Scott was required to "break in" to the closed KQED TV studios at midnight, with help from KQED engineers, activate the entire phone bank inside the studios and staff the phones with qualified counselors on an emergency basis. The Loma Prieta segment of the San Andreas Fault System had been relatively inactive since the 1906 San Francisco earthquake (to the degree that it was designated a seismic gap) until two moderate foreshocks occurred in June 1988 and again in August 1989.Because it happened during a national live broadcast of the 1989 World Series, taking place between Bay Area teams San Francisco Giants and the Oakland Athletics, it is sometimes referred to as the "World Series earthquake". Rush-hour traffic on the Bay Area freeways was lighter than normal because the game, being played at Candlestick Park in San Francisco, was about to begin, and this may have prevented a larger loss of life, as several of the Bay Area's major transportation structures suffered catastrophic failures. The collapse of a section of the double-deck Nimitz Freeway in Oakland was the site of the largest number of casualties for the event, but the collapse of man-made structures and other related accidents contributed to casualties occurring in San Francisco, Los Altos, and Santa Cruz.

INVENTORS VS. THE SILICON VALLEY OLIGARCHS:
"We care about intellectual property rights and inventions because it affects BILLIONS of dollars of our income that bad guys copied and are now using in harmful ways, to the detriment of society..."
We have already faced some of the biggest players in the world in court and stopped them cold; so some of the tech cartel will do anything to keep from facing us in front of a jury because they know they did crimes to put our money in their pockets. They chose to cheat rather than compete and now they have to face the music. Billions of dollars of our money is at stake and we will not give up on inventor rights and anti-corruption reforms.
Why Does The Silicon Valley Cartel Have To Steal Their Technology Instead Of Making Their Own?
The United States Patent And Trademark Office, and multiple other state and federal agencies, have certified that Scott invented, designed, built and operated companies and products which GOOGLE, YOUTUBE, SONY and FACEBOOK copied years later after gathering illicit industrial intelligence on those companies and technologies via 'nefarious means'. (ie- SEE THIS ARTICLE: Inventors Who Changed the World and Got Screwed in Return.pdf ) Three of those competitors did not even exist when Scott's companies were ALREADY doing everything that Google, Youtube and Facebook based the launch of their companies on. Scott's investors have launched federal investigations on those competitors who chose to "cheat rather than compete"!

E. Scott created and produced the first fully integrated virtual reality system. Years later Mark Zuckerberg copied it to create OCULUS. Who says so? The United States Patent Office, time-stamped mails between him, his staff and they key parties, NDA’s, contracts, press clippings, broadcast news videos, feature news articles, federal reports, Oliver Stone's Wild Palm's crew, Congressional reports and other indisputable evidence. The products, services and technology were offered on the market via operating companies and copied by competitors.
F. Scott created, produced and built the XP car manufacturing company that was TESLA’s biggest competitor . The United States Government financed it, it won more patents and it beat the tech Cartel’s Tesla on every metric. Who says so? The Dept of Energy Documents, Congress, The United States Patent Office, emails between him, his staff, famous politicians and they key parties, NDA’s, contracts, press clippings, broadcast news videos, federal reports, Congressional reports, The Federal Lawsuits his associates filed and won and other indisputable evidence. The products, services and technology were offered on the market via operating companies and copied by competitors.
All of these oligarchs know each other; share lawyers, lobbyists, CPA’s and politicians; run dirty tricks attacks on competitors and are now the subjects of federal investigations and lawsuits. They spend tens of millions of dollars per year attacking competitors and lobbying to manipulate the U.S. Patent Office. The single largest number of corporate political bribery investigations, corporate sex trafficking charges, corporate money-laundering charges, corporate tax evasion charges and related crimes, are focused on Silicon Valley corporations! These days; when they do bad things, they get reported to federal law enforcement and regulatory agencies and the government ends up suing them.

The Inventor Group Says: It wasn't a fluke that America led the world in innovation for 200 years. It began with the revolutionary concept of giving the common person ownership of what he or she invented and patented. The mission of US Inventor is to restore that right, which has been so significantly reduced from recent legislation and judicial actions.
What we've accomplished and will accomplish depends on the combined efforts of our members. Many individuals across America have helped in the mission of US Inventor. You don't have to be an inventor to be on our team, you just have to care about the future of America and the American Dream. One individual who needs to be recognized for his stellar efforts and commitment to our mission is Josh Malone. We wouldn't be where we are without him.
The political focus on the virus and then the election definitely got in the way, but we still made progress. Here are a few accomplishments:
We stopped the re-enactment of an expired patent invalidation program at the PTAB (Patent Trial and Appeal Board). There was a significant effort to get CBM (Covered Business Method) Review re-enacted by placing the text deep within the Appropriations Bill. We mounted an effort to head this off by having inventors nationwide inform their Senators and US Representatives. The CBM text did not make it into the final version of the bill.
We held a nationwide election for an inventor to sit on the Patent Public Advisory Committee (PPAC), and then got him appointed for the position. Dan Brown, prolific inventor and professor at Northwestern University, will represent the interests of inventors and and help our efforts.
Our efforts to get the USPTO to apply the rulemaking process to the PTAB got things moving in that direction. Part of this was the filing of a lawsuit to enjoin the Patent Office from doing any PTAB trials until rulemaking was done. Whether or not the injunction will occur is in question, but the USPTO Director has put out a request for comments regarding the rules needed.
We assisted in the filing of a number of Amicus Briefs, one of which sought to get the US Supreme Court to take up the Arthrex Case in 2021, which it has decided to do. This is the case where the Appeals Court ruled that all of the PTAB “judges” were appointed unconstitutionally but proposed an unconstitutional way for them to continue. So, they are still invalidating our patents. SCOTUS will now take a look and possibly do something that helps us.
We've submitted several FOIA (Freedom of Information Act) Requests that have provided previously unknown information that has helped our efforts and will continue to do so.
We started a live WebCast called In The Trenches With Inventors, The Battle To Save Patents. This WebCast is designed to generate interest in our fight by interviewing inventors who have had their patents attacked at the PTAB.
We've kicked off a program to have inventors who have been harmed by our broken patent system interviewed by various media nationwide to make our issue broadly known.
We've had the benefit of a USPTO Director who has had an interest in our issues. We certainly want Andrei Iancu to continue as Director, but we could face the appointment of a new Director that is close to Big Tech. Any reader new to our fight might be shocked to know that, prior to President Trump's appointment of Mr. Iancu, the USPTO Director was the former head of patent strategy for Google!
The US Supreme Court's Arthrex Case is coming this spring. The PTAB “judges” have been ruled as having been appointed unconstitutionally, so why are they still invalidating our patents? We need to really make our voices heard on this one, and we are considering how to do so. Your help will be needed.
A legitimate path to success in our fight is to make our issue known to the broad, voting public. The average person is usually shocked to find out that a patent can be so easily invalidated and the inventor left with nothing. We have embarked on a program of media interviews to make our issue known.

What You Can Do
You can help by communicating our message far and wide. If you haven't yet signed our Inventor Rights Resolution, please do so and get your associates to as well (go here).
When we have a particular effort where the voices of inventors are needed, like the effort to get the PTAB invalidation text out of the Appropriations Bill, be ready to help.
Support our effort by donating (we are a 501(c)(4) Non-Profit). Any amount is appreciated, but a $100 donation gets you a special US Inventor Mug (go here).
As you ring in the New Year, realize that we are fighting full-time to restore your rights as inventors and that we are your voice in Washington DC. American innovation and the success of disruptive startups based on patents depends on the ability of any inventor to defend his or her patent rights,
Among your New Years Resolutions, consider resolving to be active in our efforts. With enough inventors and interested parties involved, we will win this battle. Thank you for your help.

In the article:
...one can see the promotion of the approach, wherein small inventors are criminalized and re-branded as “evil” that has been manifested, in large part, by a certain organization that is dedicated to trying tod to KILL THE UNITED STATES PATENT SYSTEM. They have a budget of over TWO BILLION DOLLARS, and growing, to do this. That may sound bad but, in fact, it is good news. They are in total violation of federal RICO and ANTI-TRUST laws. The DOJ and FTC must sue them and Class Actions by inventors must sue them.
If the White House and Congress do not stand up for the “American Dream” and human rights, then they need to be voted out of office.
Class Actions, RICO and ANTI-TRUST must be filed ASAP! The perpetrators must be named and publicly shamed. There is no time to wait! There can be no more pussy-footing around when the Big Tech Cartel has declared a literal war on innovation in America.
This news article underscores the issues of the anti-trust violations by the Silicon Valley tech bullies and reflects the need for the FTC, SEC, DOJ, OSC, FBI and Congress to intervene:
HOW THE SILICON VALLEY CARTEL USES MONOPOLISTIC COLLUSION TO DESTROY COMPETITORS
"The Silicon Valley Cartel took out any electric car competitor that competed with their boyfriend: Elon Musk. They killed any web video competitor to their boyfriends at Netflix. They destroyed any contact software that competed with their boyfriend: Reid Hoffman! Now, the FTC, SEC, FCC, Congress and DOJ have received complaints asking them to address the tech monopoly.
Politicians talk a big game about coming down on the Silicon Valley Cartel but they never really seem to move on their threats or declarations because they are receiving bribes FROM the Silicon Valley Cartel. It has been proven that Google does indeed pick and choose what search results come up at the top of every search in order to help Google's friends and harm Google's enemies. Google, Facebook, Netflix and Tesla covertly spend billions of dollars influencing Congress.
The monopoly of the Silicon Valley Cartel is distinct and different from somebody like the New York Times, for example, or any major media platform that does not have legal immunity because they are publishers. All other publishers do pick and choose what news stories they publish, what letters to the editor’s are printed, what kind of op-eds are put on their platform, and they make those decisions knowing they are legally liable. Google bribed the 230 law into existence as an exclusive law just for Google to get away with exclusionary market crimes.
Via agreements to collude, the Silicon Valley Cartel platforms are acting as publishers as they are making editorial decisions while maintaining a legal immunity under section 230 which allows them to attack others without consequences. Google has parties and members of congress will go and pick up their checks. Facebook will have a big reception and Congress members go and say "hey, where’s my check?'”. That is outright bribery!
Tulsi Gabbard, Elizabeth Warren and hundreds of community action groups say that the reason no one is acting on big tech is that the companies are inviting our elected members of congress into their very deep pockets. This is a massive abuse of power on several levels and if our elected officials can’t resist the temptation of extra money in their pockets, then they need to be removed by recall elections, lawsuits and doxing.
Famous journalist Glenn Greenwald has documented the fact that in recent months, tech giants have censored political speech and journalism to manipulate U.S. politics. The Silicon Valley Cartel has attacked smaller Bay Area start-ups, threatened the lives and income of every competitor and prances around with impunity, publicly stating that they believe that; “The FTC is their bitch…!”
Mark Zuckerberg, Eric Schmidt, Elon Musk, Larry Page, Vinod Khosla, Steve Westly, Steve Spinner, John Doerr and the other Silicon Valley Cartel bosses hand down orders to their family office staff, who, in turn, hand down orders to their lobbysists, CPA’s tech law firms , Goldman Sachs and dirty tricks operatives. It is ludicrous for the FTC, the FBI, or any agency, to ignore the chain of command insider structure that kill the competing companies that a ‘Larry Page’ wants killed. An Elon Musk-paid lawyer at Wilson Sonsini has a thousand times more resources to kill a competitor than Elon Musk, personally has, but that lawyer has millions of dollars and specific orders, that he would not otherwise have, if Musk had not given the kill order. These oligarchs have services that they hire to have the executives at their competitors character assassinated, defamed and attacked.
It is widely documented in the news that two top Perkins Coie lawyers were retained to hire Fusion GPS and organize the Steele Dossier attack on a famous politician. Multiply this by 10,000 lawyers, at famous law firms, and you will see that there is a tsunami of thousands of lawyers producing thousands of character assassination programs on behalf of crazy billionaires and power mad politicians. There are no laws to stop them and the violence of the counter-attacks, by citizens, who have no protection from these attacks, increases annually. Without laws to stop 'commercialized defamation' this will spiral into something very, very bad.
Critics of Silicon Valley censorship for years heard the same BS refrain: “… tech platforms like Facebook, Google and Twitter are private corporations and can host or ban whoever they want. If you don’t like what they are doing, the solution is not to complain or to regulate them. Instead, go create your own social media platform that operates the way you think it should...”
The founders of Palm, Blockbuster, Altavista, Path, Alta Motors, Webvan, Jawbone, MySpace, etc., heard that suggestion and tried. Over 100 comapnies have created social media platforms similar to Twitter but which promised far greater privacy protections, including a refusal to aggregate user data in order to monetize them to advertisers or algorithmically evaluate their interests in order to promote content or products to them. They also promised far greater free speech rights, rejecting the increasingly repressive content policing of Silicon Valley giants. They discovered, though, that YOU CANNOT BUILD A COMPANY IN SILICON VALLEY IF IT COMPETES WITH THE SILICON VALLEY CARTEL! YOU WILL NOT BE ALLOWED TO DO IT!
( NOTE: We built an electric car company, an internet video broadcasting company, a social media network and suffered THE SAME EXACT ATTACKS as thousands of others who “dared” to compete with the Silicon Valley Cartel. This is not about politics it is about organized crime! In fact Google/Youtube spent over thirty million dollars (exposed in their banking records) attacking Scott and blockading him from suing them in court because they feared his competing technologies. In a similar case, in a special federal hearing, the United States Patent Office ruled that Scott had first invented the architecture that Facebook is based on but Facebook's executive's sit on the U.S. Patent Office administration board and ordered Scott's social media patent blockaded from issuance. Google's patent lawyer was the previous head of the U.S. Patent Office and re-staged the Patent Office as a protection racket to help Google and Facebook steal IP without paying for it. )
The competitors to Twitter, Google, Facebook and Netflix (who all collude together) encountered initial success. Millions of people who objected to increasing repression of speech on the largest platforms or who had themselves been banned signed up for these new social media companies.
As Silicon Valley censorship radically escalated over the past several months — banning pre-election reporting by The New York Post, denouncing and deleting multiple posts from the public and then terminating their access altogether, mass-removal of accounts — many people migrated to other options.
For each one, it looked as if they had proven critics of Silicon Valley monopolistic power wrong. The early success showed that it was possible after all to create new social media platforms to compete with Facebook, Instagram and Twitter. These others did so by doing exactly what Silicon Valley defenders long insisted should be done: if you don’t like the rules imposed by tech giants, go create your own platform with different rules.
BUT...each one of them were erased from the internet by Apple, Google, Twitter, Facebook and Netflix!
If one were looking for evidence to demonstrate that these tech behemoths are, in fact, monopolies that engage in anti-competitive behavior in violation of antitrust laws, and will obliterate any attempt to compete with them in the marketplace, it would be difficult to imagine anything more compelling than how they use their unconstrained power to utterly destroy ANY rising competitor. Absolute proof of their corrupt manipulations of the internet, the stock markets, and funding have now been hand-delivered to the FTC, the SEC and Congress!
In the case of Apple's anti-trust violating attacks, it is hard to overstate the harm to a platform from being removed from the App Store. Users of iPhones are barred from downloading apps onto their devices from the internet. If an app is not on the App Store, it cannot be used on the iPhone. Even iPhone users who have already downloaded the App will lose the ability to receive updates, which will shortly render the platform both unmanageable and unsafe.
In October, the House Judiciary Subcommittee on Antitrust, Commercial, and Administrative Law issued a 425-page report concluding that Amazon, Apple, Facebook and Google all possess monopoly power and are using that power anti-competitively. For Apple, they emphasized the company’s control over iPhones through its control of access to the App Store. As Ars Technica put it when highlighting the report’s key findings:
Apple controls about 45 percent of the US smartphone market and 20 percent of the global smartphone market, the committee found, and is projected to sell its 2 billionth iPhone in 2021. It is correct that, in the smartphone handset market, Apple is not a monopoly. Instead, iOS and Android hold an effective duopoly in mobile operating systems.
However, the report concludes, Apple does have a monopolistic hold over what you can do with an iPhone. You can only put apps on your phone through the Apple App Store, and Apple has total gatekeeper control over that App Store—that's what Epic is suing the company over. . . .
The committee found internal documents showing that company leadership, including former CEO Steve Jobs, "acknowledged that IAP requirement would stifle competition and limit the apps available to Apple's customers." The report concludes that Apple has also unfairly used its control over APIs, search rankings, and default apps to limit competitors' access to iPhone users.
It was precisely Google’s abuse of its power to control its app device that was at issue when the European Commission deemed Google LLC as the dominant undertaking in the app stores for the Android mobile operating system (i.e. Google Play Store) and hit the online search and advertisement giant with €4.34 billion for its anti-competitive practices to strengthen its position in various of other markets through its dominance in the app store market.”
There are an endless number of hypocrisies with Silicon Valley giants feigning opposition to violent rhetoric or political extremism. Amazon, for instance, is one of the CIA’s most profitable partners, with a $600 million contract to provide services to the agency, and it is constantly bidding for more. On Facebook and Twitter, one finds official accounts from the most repressive and violent regimes on earth, including Saudi Arabia, and pages devoted to propaganda on behalf of the Egyptian regime. Does anyone think these tech giants have a genuine concern about violence and extremism?
The nature of monopolistic power is that anti-competitive entities engage in anti-trust illegalities to destroy rising competitors. Any small and new enough platform in tech is such that it can be made an example of. Its head can be placed on a pike to make clear that no attempt to compete with existing Silicon Valley monopolies is possible. The destruction of any new tech start-up preserves the unchallengeable power of a tiny handful of tech oligarchs over the political discourse not just of the United States but democracies worldwide (which is why Germany, France and Mexico are raising their voices in protest).
No authoritarians believe they are authoritarians. No matter how repressive are the measures they support — censorship, monopoly power, no-fly lists for American citizens without due process — they tell themselves that those they are silencing and attacking are so evil, are terrorists, that anything done against them is noble and benevolent, not despotic and repressive..."
