Inspiration[edit]

By the way, I figured I'd share here what was my inspiration to create this template: Stephen Wolfram's The Quest for Computable Knowledge is an extensive overview on the topic that mentions many of the entries linked from this template. Of course, most of these articles already delve into more detail than Wolfram's text, but it's nice to have a condensed overview of the whole timeline of developments. --Waldir talk 11:49, 12 December 2009 (UTC)
