Robot Exclusion Protocol

So I saw this story on Patent Yogi:

Indoor localization of mobile devices – PatentYogi

A Google patent which dates to 2013. I immediately remembered a story, an extended joke, really; from 2002.

Robot Exclusion Protocol (Ftrain.com)

Hello! I am Googlebot! I will not kill you!
It was an important message then, and the only thing different today is that the term of art 'Robot Exclusion Protocol' has been embraced by Google. It's now about the robots.txt file.

Must have been really funny back in 2002.

It's just scarily accurate, now.

(Okay, still funny... site bookmarked!)
