Microsoft is trying to patent a dating site algorithm that will connect people with "fringe interests." I will let that sink in, then stop you when you get too dirty with "fringe interests." They are looking to set people up with similar, you know, nerd hobbies. As Geekwire reports, Microsoft specifically mentions comic books as an interest no red-blooded American that wants to get his freak on talks about in public.
I have to ask, is Microsoft being... I do not even have a word for it. Not Nerdist, cause that's awesome. Anti-nerd? Nerd-con? That would be cool.
