Google Granted Identity Management Patent

Category: PatentsTeknovis @ 8:06 pm

I read an interesting article over the weekend describing how Google was granted a patent for identity management.

The article is Google Granted Pseudonym Patent (You’re Welcome. And, What Is Wrong With You), and the patent is US 8,271,894 – Social computing personas for protecting identity in online social interactions.

I am sure that there is novelty destroying prior art that has been previously published!

I am amusing myself for the last few minutes of the day looking at Plane Finder!

It is very impressive, although I do not know how accurate it is.
