Wolfram Alpha

Just saw a screencast for Wolfram Alpha. This blows me away. Tons of ideas. How do we make it real-time?

If it can answer questions like "Show me all options whose buy price is under the fair value", then most of us are out of a job.

Oh, don't worry about being out of a job. You'll just have to relocate. I searched for "unemployment rate," and it told me there is zero unemployment in Monaco, the Maldives, the Falkland Islands, and Andorra.

But don't go to Naura (90 per cent unemployment), Liberia (85 per cent unemployment),or Zimbabwe (80 per cent unemployment),.

Considering how slow it seems to be for simple queries, I'd say that making it real-time is not exactly the next step!
