So, if you haven’t heard of Wolfram|Alpha, I urge you to check it out. It’s certainly something new in the internet world that deserves attention.

Wolfram Research built the Wolfram|Alpha search engine. Yes, these are the same people that brought you Mathematica. Therefore, it doesn’t come as a surprise that when I ask Wolfram|Alpha about the airspeed velocity of an unladen swallow, I received the following result:

Frankly, I can’t tell if I like the answer, or if the Wolfram Research people need to get a better sense of humor.

Then again, I suppose they’re mathematicians, so they were born without humor.  I guess this is the best they can do.

Either way, check out Wolfram|Alpha.  Let me know if you find anything interesting!
