WolframAlpha Almost ready

Remember this post?:

Well, the time is almost here for the grand unveiling. I'm really anxious to try it out I just finished watching the video of it in action - the REAL promo video. But, even more exciting is that tonight, May 15, 2009, at 8:00pm ET, you can watch a live webcast of the grand opening. But, while you wait, watch THIS video about what is going on behind the scenes. This is fascinating!

So, why is this being treated like such a big deal? Because this is the future of the web. No longer will search engines simply return to a list of sites that include your keyword, but it will instead tell you the answer, even if what you typed wasn't really a question. This is HUGE!! Watch the video. Now think about how education should change when we've got this kind of intelligence at our fingertips.

This is the background of the launch:
