Well, I went to one of my libraries yesterday, and guess what they had sitting in with the new books? "A New Kind Of Science".

Well. This was too much. Even though I already have a million things to do, plus... Well.

I'm going to read it, or at least skim it - maybe a bad idea, since I think it's going to be over my head, but we shall see. I'll try and keep you guys posted on the essentials, if you are interested.

Please do...I'm very curious...

...and I want to know what the book says too... (*ba dum* rimshot :P)

Yeah, I really should buy that myself, at some point. (Incidentally, Greg Egan has written one of the most informed, cogent summaries (a semi-review as well) I've seen of it: here.

Edit, Hellkeepa: Added "target=_new" to the link, so that it'll open in a new window. ;-
