Hey All,

I thought you might be interested in an event Berkman is hosting next 
week with Stephen Wolfram, creator of Mathematica. He's going to be 
demo-ing his new project, Wolfram Alpha, a "Computational Knowledge 
Engine" / browser search engine, on 4/28 at 3PM at HLS. Jonathan 
Zittrain will also be  hosting/participating. More info here:

A Sneak Preview of Wolfram|Alpha: Computational Knowledge Engine

There's been great anticipation around Stephen Wolfram's ambitious
project to create a comprehensive "computational knowledge engine." The
Berkman Center for Internet & Society at Harvard University will host a
sneak preview of the Wolfram|Alpha system, and a discussion of its
underlying technology and implications. Participants will include
Wolfram|Alpha founder Stephen Wolfram and Jonathan Zittrain, Professor
of Law.

Stephen Wolfram is the creator of Mathematica, the author of A New Kind
of Science, and now the creator of Wolfram|Alpha. He is the founder and
CEO of Wolfram Research.

Jonathan Zittrain is a Professor of Law at Harvard Law School, is a
co-founder of the Berkman Center for Internet & Society and served as
its first executive director from 1997-2000.
