Google Buys Orion

Google has paid the University of NSW an undisclosed sum for the rights to a mathematical process developed by Ori Allon that promises to change the way we explore the web. But it is unclear how rich it will make the 26-year-old doctoral student at the university who developed the algorithm, Ori Allon. My bet is "Damn rich":-)

Orion could become the basis for the next generation of search engines, improving the relevance of responses to a search and displaying a more detailed taste of each file so users can better decide if it is what they need before visiting a site.

Google has gagged Mr Allon and UNSW from disclosing much information at this point.
