asciilifeform: (e.g. wolfram turns a profit, somehow)

mangol: a cathedral is a really big, really long lasting building. software equivalent is big and complex, something like mathematica / wolfram alpha

asciilifeform: mangol: the only dataflow system asciilifeform had used in earnest (not counting hardwarisms in verilog etc) was wolfram's. and was bog-slow, per se, and from what asciilifeform suspects are fundamental impedance mismatches with vonneumannistic irons

*wonders whether rebrand from 'new kind of science'(tm)(r)(c) to 'wolfram's physics'(tm)(r)(c) is step up or down in degree of megalomania ...*

asciilifeform: trinque: i developed allergy. (to wolfram, not cell-physics.) but if you get into subj and find sumthing that wasn't in nks -- plox to write in.

trinque: asciilifeform: interesting, at any rate he's put together a cult to try to run the cellular physics over the line

Aerthean: In this case I think the guy either met or knew people close to Wolfram, so unlikely to change. I'm not sure he even has to pay for his copy.

asciilifeform: and not simply because of cost, vendor-lock, etc. wolfram's support & bug handling makes microshit's look responsive and sane in comparison.

asciilifeform: ... twice ! 2nd time, when 'wolfram alpha' hype-demo circus.

asciilifeform: in ratio of 'promised to delivered goods' , wolfram managed to approach pons&fleischmann...

asciilifeform: revisiting wolfram -- it aint clear to me that he had ever, in whole life, had an idea (in the claimed sense.) specifically 'automata physics' aint his idea. belongs to von neumann & co. likewise 'rule 110' -- m. cook.

snsabot: (trilema) 2015-04-09 ascii_field: 'The real problem with this result, however, is that it is not Wolfram's. He didn't invent cyclic tag systems, and he didn't come up with the incredibly intricate construction needed to implement them in Rule 110. This was done rather by one Matthew Cook, while working in Wolfram's employ under a contract with some truly remarkable provisions about intellectual property. In short, Wolfram got to control not only when and

trinque: Aerthean: what do you think of what Wolfram's up to currently?

asciilifeform: all it is, is modular multiplicative inverse, i.e. in constant spacetime, for given n,m find i where n*i === 1 mod m .

asciilifeform: verisimilitude: re your copyrasty article & elena ceausescu -- the interesting part is that in the so-called 'free world', ceausescus of this kind are the ~rule~, rather than the exception. from edison (who invented the 'biz model' of 'keep 9000 researchers for starvation wage and harvest 100% of profit' to e.g. steve wolfram's lawsuit re cook's 'rule 110', to the chair of just about eve
