The Wolfram|Alpha Launch Team

Live, from Champaign!

Wolfram|Alpha just went live for the very first time, running all clusters.

This first run at testing Wolfram|Alpha in the real world is off to an auspicious start, although not surprisingly, we’re still working on some kinks, especially around logging.

While we’re still in the early stages of this long-term project, it is really gratifying to finally have the opportunity to invite you to participate in this project with us.

We are very grateful for the outpouring of support that we have received over the past two months. And for the enthusiastic interest that was shown this evening, especially in the last few minutes.

We got off to a late start, but so far, so good. We’ll stay up for as along as it makes sense to test the system with external access and gather the data we need. Then we’ll take Wolfram|Alpha offline for a while. We’ll continue testing through the weekend, opening access on occasion.

And we're live!

For those of you trying out the system for the first time, welcome! To anyone waiting in line due to capacity limits, thanks for your patience. We really appreciate it.
