Prism (12)endif ?>
The mysterious Smurf-factor, an inside joke concerning Prism, refers to a semantical problem in bridging language to visual design. The Prism software works on real-life data from the internet, where most talk relating to Smurfs is about the Papa Smurf, or Great Smurf, with his funny white beard and red trousers.
Initially we believed that software would conclude that Smurfs are great, and depict them as gigantic monsters overflowing the page, whereas real Smurfs are actually quite small. This has later been refuted, but the Smurf-factor label has endured as a description for illogical results returned from Prism.include("util/comment.php"); ?>
