The company is called Inxight if I recall correctly.

Their hyperbolic view is very sweet, I have to admit. There were some 
very interesting discussions concerning that patent as well -- people 
pointed out the actual patent covers a _mathematical concept_ well 
predating last century... so it can be hardly called an invention. 
Although it took some genius to apply it to computer-aided structure
