Happy Messages are Free To Pass
I've never seen marketing for an algorithm before...
I love the happy and unhappy message figures
Hmm, from the title I expected some kind of Chinglish or
reverse-Babelfish-translation story... but this is pretty amusing
too. I definitely think those images with the stick figures need
to be animated. Also, I like the quote that the algorithm "runs
faster than Dijkstra". Come on, he's an old man, how fast can he
possibly run? (Actually, turns out he died a couple years ago, so I guess there's no question now.)
Seems like the algorithm's developer though he could patent it. Given they applied in 2002 and haven't updated the site since, I would maybe guess no such luck.
I'd be interested to know what the algorithm IS though. The site doesn't say, I wouldn't be surprised if contacting gave no response, and does the US Patent Office keep copies of REJECTED patents?
Yeah I was wondering the same thing. The funniest part about the whole thing is that I found the site from a context add in gmail, in the middle of some dorkversation about some algorithm or other. So that dude is actually STILL paying for people to go to his outdated site...
