comment Can someone else patent my open-sourced algorithm?
Good stuff, all around. I, too, feel it is best for me to have published this work. Source control helps provide earlier work which established my thought process. Besides, I think the benefits outweigh the risks.

This makes sense. I still want others to be able to look over my code, though.

comment Can someone else patent my open-sourced algorithm?
That all sounds reasonable. I agree about the point about "not searching in the right places or using the correct terms." It's likely that I'm wrong, given how obvious the technique feels to me. In any regard, thanks for the advice. I don't necessarily feel any better, but at least I feel more informed on the matter.

I think removing my code from my open source repository would be a rather drastic thing to do, and I don't really want to get tangled up in this field, or spend much time thinking about it when I could be writing more code. I don't think I'll do that.

James, I'm in the U.S., home of the Texas Eastern District Court. My question is prior art and you cannot patent it!
