A new report card for one of the nation's most powerful innovation engines shows Stanford University based inventions generated more than $65 million in income for the university last year despite a recession.

Stanford's total earnings from inventions were just over $1 billion during the past four decades - with more than half coming from just two inventions: the hypertext searching used by Google brought in $336.5 million. The groundbreaking DNA-splicing technology brought in $225 million and DSL brought in $28.7 million.
