Beware Schemers: Linked List Patented!

I'm reading in slashdot that the Linked List has been patented.

As of april 11, 2006!

Yes, it's not april 1st 2006! You can see the patent grant here.

I couldn't stop laughing! :-D :-D

Now, be careful if you use "car" or "cdr" in your Scheme implementation: you may be infringing a patent! ;-)

And, of course, be careful with your java.util.LinkedList stuff too.

Now, thinking of it seriously, is blogging patented?? :-D
