You're not correct and that's fine...
Think as you like, but please don't mislead people here.
If you follow the link you will find the Caffeine Infrastructure change (what MC and the rest of the people at Google draw a distinction from compared to an algo change) is a change from GFS I to GFS II.
The algo is not part of the Infrastructure (Caffeine) and Mayday (the algo change) is NOT part of Caffeine... It was in place before Caffeine was. The Speed portion of the algo was not part of Caffeine... It was in place before Caffeine was. If the algo changes were part of Caffeine we would NOT have 3 threads here discussing updates and changes.
Please, don't confuse people because it's tough enough to try and give people an idea of what's going on so they can try to draw reasonable conclusions and make reasonable changes if necessary without confusing the algo changes (currently Mayday) with Caffeine (Infrastructure, GFS II).
Caffeine is a way of delivering new and more accurate search results to the public and the algorithm is a big factor in doing this.
No it is NOT! It's a new way of storing the information.
