Wolfram's Black Box: a biologist's take on Wolfram|Alpha

Alpha seems to me like an excellent preview of the future for human - machine augmentation... I agree with all the critics of the system right now; but a bigger view of things is needed to grasp the potential, soon we will be able to help ourselves to better understand some of the more complex concepts in nature, and be better human beings because of it. (For example, we still suck at grasping exponential growth, volume, etc... See my previous post: )

What are your opinions on Alpha?
