Microsoft names research project Cibai, women all over the world feels liberated!

cibai

Of all the names in the world that Francesco Logozzo can think of for his research project at Microsoft, he comes up with the epic word, Cibai. What is Cibai? Here. I think someone needs to tell Francesco or Microsoft what it really means. Don't want them to start producing their Cibai t-shirts and merchandise.

Check out this excerpt from his Cibai research paper (PDF): "The next step in the development of Cibai is the generation of method summaries: we plan to apply Cibai on the Java API so to generate stubs, and then to reuse these stubs when analyzing large programs." Apply Cibai on Java to get stubs then reuse stubs on large programs? Huh? I didn't know Cibai is so complicated.

Update: Cibai has exploded on Twitter. Here are some funny Cibai Tweets:
mrbrown: Dear USA tweeters. Let Singapore teach you the real #cibai. CIBAI is actually a warm Asian greeting. Try it the next time you meet someone!
weirdnotion: I've got so many friends who already own #cibai. You're not gonna make a profit, Microsoft!
starstreet: My friend just said: My CIBAI got virus!! Oh god the jokes won't stop coming. Coming, get it? Coming...?
misskely: Damn Cibai is so complicated? Fear not, maybe they'll publish a manual: Tools and Shortcuts to cibai.

And lastly two of mine:
izreloaded: Friend asked if I tried Cibai before. I said which one? Microsoft Cibai, not yet. Too complicated. I prefer my Cibai to be less complicated.
izreloaded: I've been talking about Cibai non stop for more than two hours already. Think I got the Cibailitis. It's highly infectious.
