Published by Oleg Gutsol · July 9th 2012

Hi all,

I am pleased to announce that 500px has acquired Algo Anywhere — the recommendation technology company based in Toronto. We are excited to welcome Adam Gravitis and Zach Aysan, the founders of Algo, who have joined 500px today. With the help of Algo Anywhere's technology, 500px will be able to enhance the image discovery and rating algorithms as well as improve the scalability, durability and security of our systems.

This marks the next step in our company evolution to lead the best online photography user experience in the world.

I hope the acquisition/absorption of Algo Anywhere leads to the sunsetting of the ridiculous and abuse-prone anonymous Dislike button.

I've read the Algo blurb and have to say I'm none the wiser about what it is exactly they will provide, in the context of 500px, that will make things so much better. A brief summary, in user-friendly language, would be much appreciated.
