    Stephen I have been a supporter since you went live with Wolfram|Alpha on JTV.

    I remember seeing a wall monitor “Wolffram Alpha Compute Cluster” which showed various processing usage of the system, which I found informative.

    Is this visual available for us to see online?

    Thanks and I use and tell my friends about Wolfram|Alpha all the time!

We’ll be right back…small technical difficulty…

Who are you? I really don’t know!

Is Wolfram|Alpha going to compile c++/Java/anything like this?

We’ve been sending these questions into the mix. Keep them coming!

I love the idea of WA, but everytime I try to ask a question it almost always says “I don’t understand”. How do you plan on making that workable?

Stephen,
I was wondering if there will be more language manipulation capabilities added to Wolfram Alpha. Translating between languages is the obvious example, but what I would really like to see implemented is a verb conjugation system. Something like this would be extremely helpful when learning foreign languages. Are there any plans to expand in this area?

Keep the questions coming. We’re going to stay live.

Thank you! It has been wonderful, wether you get it back up again or not, it has been great so far.

Thanks everyone! Stay tuned…

That was great. I think it will be worth another listen. I hope you do this more.

Thank you, Sir! I am looking forward to the next great cast; I learned a lot today!

Congratulations on the great progress so far. I know it is not enough to have ideas. Communicating a new idea is very difficult. In your shoes many would be sitting alone complaining that noone will listen to them.

Will WA be a candidate in future for the Turing test. (a human (H.s.s.) can not tell the difference in text answers between a computer of a human being)?

To Mr. S. Wolfram
It has been many years ago I watched you on screen at a videoconference at Eindhoven ( the Netherlands).
First of all I have to apologize, because what stroke me most of all was not the Mathematics, but the videoconference itself. I shared the concept of mathematical proof enthousiastically as it was lectured by various speakers.
The experience of Wolram-Alpha is the supreme answer to the expectations I hadof mathematics when I wasabout 16 years old.
Maybe you are able to calculate the probability we shall ever meet in the universe to tell you: “I had a dream.”
Sincerely yours,
Eric Tieskens

To Mr. S. Wolfram,
It is possible that there is something behind your concept of mathematical proof of scientific interest. Herewith I ask you to gather and protect as manydata as you are able to for scientific investigation.
You are welcome to discuss the matter in detail,
Sincerely yours,
Eric Tieskens

To Mr. S. Wolfram
What beyond WolframAlpha?
As for me it is obvious we share some intertst.
I would be very glad to meet you,
Sincerely yrs,

The last comment above suggests that the recording is available to watch again, I thought it was supposed to be on this blog. Is it avaialable yet?
