Yahoo Patent Letter to Facebook Referring to Memcached and Other Open Source Technologies

Sarah Lacy:

The technologies in question include things like memcached which was created in 2003 by LiveJournal and has been used longer than Facebook has been alive.[…]

Other examples include Open Compute, an open hardware project started by Facebook that focuses on low-cost, energy efficient server and data center hardware; Tornado a Python-based web server used for building real-time Web services; and HPHP, a source code transformer that turns PHP into C++.

I have no other details about this patent letter Yahoo sent Facebook, but I seriously doubt it targets these technologies separately. Most probably it refers to some sort of combinations of these and one that Facebook has mentioned as part of their IP.
