Wolfram’s NKS now 100% online for free

I’m a big fan of Wolfram’s work in “A New Kind Of Science”. Of course, I don’t pretend to understand anything he’s saying, but I do love the pretty pictures… Anyways… he’s released the entire contents of the book online. Not only is the book up there, but each section is linked to downloadable programs…


the one about the guy who is investing $3 Billion in longevity

This is an interesting article in Wired about a guy called John Sperling who is leaving his $3 billion fortune to research. Sperling wants us to live longer lives, so he is investing in cloning and genetic research. It’s great to see someone in the private sector investing in such important areas.
