@belisarius, if that's you, you probably met your makers? linkedin.com/in/gabrielnelson, olin.edu/faculty/profile/gill-pratt, youtube.com/watch?v=HknSD79omRs

@Mr.Wizard, what is the secret of organization? .. . [crickets] - categories: Cloud 3D, additive manufacturing, parametric feature-based solid-modeling, topological optimization, mechatronics cloud labs, &c

@Guesswhoitis -> JM? Voted to reopen if OP consents to retitle: How can WL be used to build a closet and price it on the cloud?

comment Polynomials with integer coefficients vs. polynomials with rational coefficients
2. is represented as floating point, not a Rational. IntegerQ[2.] is False; IntegerQ[2/1] is True (evaluates to 2).

@Guesswhoitis, see the latest, perception has been the bottleneck until vision/lidar: newsoffice.mit.edu/2015/cheetah-robot-lands-running-jump-0529

@Mr.Wizard, will do. Readability would greatly increase with operator form for everything + use of infix.

Unrelated but also note Dataset type system mixes real and rational values.

"Scheisse auf Pizarro" - most comments are past tense like the scribes when Gutenberg came along.

@Jens, since it's topical, re 'microscience', check the range of applications of nanoscribe.de.

@Jens, "trying to do everything" - the common denominator is Analytics language. Provided the underlying algo's are solid, WL represents the efficiency frontier w/ ~5k symbols.

@AndreasLauschke, it's not orthogonal. What if WRI leveraged the community to do just this? Imagine a globally distributed workforce incentivized to test and QA in exchange for product licence rebate. M.SE is the lever. I will mention this to them at WTC if accepted.

Vinod Khosla calls it 'technical risk' - like financial debt, technical debt can bankrupt or can be leveraged. Fyi, there are 6 decacorns ($10B valuation) internet firms in US, 2 in Asia, 0 in EU. Unlike the Germans, which only release perfection, Americans and UK take risk and correct later.

@AndreasLauschke, WRI is a top-down model but are clearly benefitting from the community: Metcalfe law: crowdsourced identification of bugs and often solutions right here on M.SE. Their tech support can't possibly scale up.

@Jens, major transitions going on, eg Cloud, 3D/additive, IoT, sensors, THz, Big Data, etc that affecting all verticals and accelerating in 2015. See eg Emerald ECL1 cloud lab. Think of it as a Cambrian explosion: the world is getting wired as one. Many new features are immediately needed.
