GZip, Not Just for Websites Anymore…

Just last week I mentioned using GZip to compress my website. Now it seems that scientist are asking File Compression: New Tool for Life Detection? “As a measure of overall pattern complexity, they find that the inherent pixel content of biologically generated fossils produces higher image compression ratios [more data redundancy], compared to their non-biological counterparts. The more the file shrinks, the more likely it is that a living process was involved.” [via Slashdot]

Hmmm… I wonder if Matt knew about this when he lead us all to gzip?
