• Wolfram is actually based in the same town I work in.

    Many speculated that Wolfram|Alpha would be a Google killer but it’s settled into its own nice little niche.

    Sadly Google killer is slapped on everything that searches. At worst by developers themselves, at best by dumb tech journalists.

    WolframAlpha made a splash when launched, but I think it feels more than comfortable without any desire or need to be Google killer. It does its own thing – extremely well.

    Search engines seem to like easter eggs. I can easily imagine bunch of programmers setting such trap and sitting staring at logs, waiting for someone to query it. :)
