Don't you mean that it wasn't the link list that they were talking about. They were talking about a list of hyperlinks whereas the patent is for a doubly linked list data structure.
Hey Buzz out loud, people and etc
The LinkedList LSI has patented is a stupid patent, but it was the "List of links" you guys where talking about.
This is the LinkedList used in programming and etc as a basic data structure (a way to store data). It was /. before, seen here: http://yro.slashdot.org/article.pl?sid=06/11/23/1546218
