Wolfram Alpha is a computational search engine. According to Nova Spivach in a March 8,2009 TechCrunch article: Google is for finding things and Wolfram Alpha is for answering things.

Stephen Wolfram got his Phd in Theoretical Physics at age 20 from Caltech. I wonder what would have happened to him in a present day classroom in the U.S. today? Would he have to wait for his classmates to catch up to his ability so there self esteem was not collectively hurt?
