Stephen Wolfram is a very ambitious person. As the inventor of Mathematica he already made it to the history books of software. But that is not enough for Stephen Wolfram, it seems. He wants his name in the ranks of the Great Scientists. Until SAGE ( The Open Source alternative for Mathematica, Maple etc. ) is on par with Mathematica we have to pay too much for Mathematica. I now know why: to fund Wolfram's obsession of becoming the Greatest Scientist of all times. It seems he is on to something huge though and is probably dreaming of Wolfram competing heads on with Google.

If someone can do it it is Stephen Wolfram. What he brought the world so far ( Mathematica, MathWorld, NKS ) is truly beautiful. Maybe his Next Big Thing is worth waiting for. It is called WolframAlpha.

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.)
