Lethargic IITian
Musings of a 20-something lethargic IITian on India and Catholicism.

Wired's story on the boy genius who created Mathematica and is now about to change the face of science itself - Stephen Wolfram. One of the best written articles I've read around - and the subject of this article is even more fascinating. Wolfram was a child prodigy who published his first research paper at 15, studied at Eton and Oxford before getting a PhD from Caltech at 20. The youngest winner of the McArthur Prize, Stephen moved on to cellular automata (the theory on which governs Conway's Game of Life, for instance) before going into seclusion a decade back to compose what (he thinks) will be the Principia of the 3rd Millenium.
