I’ve been curious about reading Wolfram’s A New Kind Of Science for a while, but not quite curious enough to shell out the dough yet. Now I don’t have to… They’ve put the entire book online for reading. If I start reading it and like what I see, I’ll likely buy the book… but this is a good way to check it out.

Which reminds me… I’ve really come to the conclusion that the 30 second song samples that are commonplace in online music stores suck. 30 seconds is just not enough time to tell if a track will be enjoyable to me. They could make a 30 second high quality sample and a full-length, low quality sample and that would let me get a better feel for the song.
