Solomon Golomb (1932–2016)

Published May 25, 2016

"An octillion. A billion billion billion. That's a fairly conservative estimate of the number of times a cellphone or other device somewhere in the world has generated a bit using a maximum-length linear-feedback shift register sequence. It's probably the single most-used mathematical algorithm idea in history. And the main originator of this idea was Solomon Golomb, who died on May 1—and whom I knew for 35 years."

Who Was Ramanujan?

Published April 27, 2016

"They used to come by physical mail. Now it's usually email. From around the world, I have for many years received a steady trickle of messages that make bold claims—about prime numbers, relativity theory, AI, consciousness or a host of other things—but give little or no backup for what they say. I'm always so busy with my own ideas and projects that I invariably put off looking at these messages. But in the end I try to at least skim them—in large part because I remember the story of Ramanujan." To read the rest of Stephen Wolfram's blog, click here.»


My Life in Technology—As Told at the Computer History Museum

Published April 19, 2016

"I normally spend my time trying to build the future. But I find history really interesting and informative, and I study it quite a lot. Usually it's other people's history. But the Computer History Museum asked me to talk today about my own history, and the history of technology I've built. So that's what I'm going to do here."
