Default New non-web search engine

The company behind Mathematica plans to launch WolframAlpha search engine this month. It will not compete with Google — instead of searching the web it will access other sources of accumulated knowledge.

Additional details at this N.Y. Times page.

The Wolfram Research company blog has articles about different applications of math (and Mathematica). Even if you do not think of yourself as a fan of mathematics, this is a fascinating place. You can download a Mathematica Reader (free for Mac, Windows, or Linux users), and then play around with demonstrations, some of which are related to design, graphic arts, or language.

Really a cool company, and I look forward to the query engine.
