Stephen Wolfram: "Well, in 1940 Atanasoff estimated that with hand calculation it would take at least 125 hours to solve a system of 20 linear equations. And he thought his computer would be able to cut that time down to about 12 hours. Which was pretty impressive. But now sixty-three years have passed. So what's happened? Well, here's the answer: now Mathematica can solve more than a thousand linear equations in a small fraction of a second." — On Scientific Computing.
"[...] we've got to get serious about using languages that really support generality. It's not going to be enough to use Fortran, or some matrix language, to do scientific computing in the future. One needs the paradigm of symbolic programming to represent the kinds of constructs that are relevant for making good models."
"In fact I won't be surprised if we can actually find the ultimate laws of physics--the fundamental rules for the universe--just by a search."

[create Symbolic Computation]Interesting article on IBM's WebFountain project. Annota et impera!Matthew Chalmers' tutorial from VLDB '99. Excellent. I'm equally convinced that for abstract information display (as opposed to display of physical objects), 3D representations are usually much worse than 2D ones.
