Wednesday Tech Tips: Wolfram Alpha

Yeah.  I feel just like Dilbert when trying to understand how Wolfram Alpha works. 
Wolfram Alpha is not a Star Trek character, nor is it a search engine: Wolfram Alpha is an answer engine.  These answers are computed from curated data and Wolfram Alpha is only be able to answer a computational query.  Ideally, Wolfram Alpha's work will never be done, as there is always more figuring to do in this world!

The important idea is that it is NEAT-O.  Go and ask something!
