A Geeky Way to Spend Friday-Night

Tonight at 8 pm New York time, Stephen Wolfram will launch WolframAlpha life on television/webcast. You can be there from the comfort of your home and do not have to be there in person like the people waiting in line for 24 hours to be the first in the Best Buy 5th Ave for the Green Day Autograph session tonight (we were driving by there on Thursday night and they had put up their tents). Of course, the webcast is a marketing gimmick, but it also shows how radical transparency is being mainstreamed as a strategic management tool. And watching a few old English men turning on the light in a data center with more than 3.800 CPUs sounds like fantastic friday night fun, doesn’t it? – To prepare you can watch the trailer.
