They stole my idea! And probably transported it backwards in time, too!

28 July 2005

For a while, I’ve had this idea kicking around my head for a different kind of online dating service, but I haven’t had the Copious Free Time to implement it. Now I don’t have to, because the people behind OkCupid had a similar idea, only they had more Copious Free Time (if I had sold two Web sites to Barnes and Noble, I’d have more Copious Free Time, too), and two of them are Real Mathematicians, which means they are using statistical matching techniques that I wouldn’t have even tried to implement.

If you’ve used this service, I’d be interested in hearing your evaluation of it, so I can find out how good my idea was.
