in thread The best sig ever?

And in fact what I've discovered is that some of the very simplest imaginable computer programs can do things as complex as anything in our whole universe.

Well, I suppose this is no revelation but as far as I know the Artifical Life mob (Emergent Properties, Bottom up, etc) have been saying this for ages. Maybe im cynical but why does it only make Newsweek when Wolfram says it?

Does Wolfram remind anyone else of Kosko? (Fuzzy Logic evangelist)

Ps Ill still probably buy the book though...

    Because they have been saying it only about the AL domain. Wolfram is saying it about everything! And to be fair, his CA work predates most of the AL work, so it is not like he's a new-comer to the band wagon, or the parade for that matter.
