Coming to terms with being human.


Not to be Missed

As any Blogdex lurker already knows, Steven Wolfram has posted all of, A New Kind of Science, online. In hardback, this tome is near fifty dollars, so free is a good deal. Not to mention that the book weighs ten pounds.
A New Kind of Science is Wolfram's attempt to change the present scientific thought process. Any attempt to subvert the dominant paradigm is worth acknowledging and Wolfram is a particularly interesting case.
Wolfram is somewhat of a mythological figure in mathematics/science. He has had a successful life and is now either changing the face of science or certifying himself as a hubris choked crackpot. In either case a big free science book is a good thing. Check it out before he gets jailed for distributing his own book over the web.
