I downloaded and watched a colloquium on SAGE by William Stein. Stein talks about the past, present and future of SAGE. He is very much in favor of open source software but couldn't find the perfect open source math program so he decided to write one himself. His plan was to reverse-engineer existing open source code and port it to a new Python program. He soon realized it would take several lifetimes to implement so he used existing software as a sort of library behind GAPE. ( ... )

He briefly mentioned none of the open source programs are in any way multi-threaded. I suppose that's both a technical and mathematical challenge. Interesting...

Mathematics: is it the fabric of MEST?
This is my voyage
My continuous mission
To uncover hidden structures
To create new theorems and proofs
To boldly go where no man has gone before

(Raumpatrouille – Die phantastischen Abenteuer des Raumschiffes Orion, colloquially aka Raumpatrouille Orion was the first German science fiction television series. Its seven episodes were broadcast by ARD beginning September 17, 1966. The series has since acquired cult status in Germany. Broadcast six years before Star Trek first aired in West Germany (in 1972), it became a huge success.)
