Wolfram Alpha Live?

Fri 8 May 2009 09:02, Bas van den Beld

It's been the talk of the town in the last couple of weeks: Wolfram Alpha. It was supposed to be the "next Google killer". Yesterday Wolfram Alpha launched. And then it went down again. The site immediately had technical issues, not a good start.

The fact engine has had some big reviews already. Now 'the rest of us' can go ahead and test it.

With Wolfram Alpha you can search for very specific things like science, math, geography, demographics and more. To give you an idea watch this sneak preview. And off course try it out yourself, when its online again :).

SMX London 'upgrades to SMX Advanced'

In only two weeks time in London Search Marketing Expo London starts. SMX has taken the 'more advanced' road ever since it started but now has decided to make it all a litlle bit more advanced.

This Monday SMX decided to change the program considerably. No less than seven sessions were cancelled. The reason for the cancellation of the sessions is that the organization has noticed "much more interest in our advanced sessions than our SMX Boot Camp sessions".... read more
