Wolfram

With both kuro5hin and Salon running stories on Stephen Wolfram there’s either just a lot of hot air about… or there really is a fire somewhere.

Salon:

“Recluse, maverick physicist and Mathematica developer Stephen Wolfram claims to have revolutionized science with his new, computer-based theories.”

kuro5hin:

“Stephen Wolfram has finally published his A New Kind of Science. The culmination of twenty years of private and furtive work by the creator of Mathematica, A New Kind of Science purports to revolutionize science and mathematics through the application of cellular automata.”

I wonder how long it will take for the Wellington Public Library to get hold of this. :-)

Or maybe it might be a nice birthday present…
