Wolfram Alpha (also styled WolframAlpha and Wolfram|Alpha) is a computational knowledge engine or answer engine developed by Wolfram Research. It is an online service that answers factual queries directly by computing the answer from externally sourced "curated data", rather than providing a list of documents or web pages that might contain the answer as a search engine might.

Wolfram Alpha, which was released on May 15, 2009, is based on Wolfram's earlier flagship product Mathematica, a computational platform or toolkit that encompasses computer algebra, symbolic and numerical computation, visualization, and statistics capabilities. Additional data is gathered from both academic and commercial websites such as the CIA's World Factbook, the United States Geological Survey, a Cornell University Library publication called All About Birds, Chambers Biographical Dictionary, Dow Jones, the Catalogue of Life, CrunchBase, Best Buy, the FAA and optionally a user's Facebook account.

Wolfram Alpha is a wonderful resource for students everywhere. I generally use it for math problems, but you can use it to learn about a lot of other things as well - seriously, there's way too many things to list, from socioeconomic data to finances to fine art. Unfortunately for college students living on campus (or anyone else with bad WiFi), it's hard to use with weak internet connection and usually takes several tries to load since it has so many interactive features. You can change the background color if you want to; you can use it to generate math problems to practice for a test (you have to pay for that, though); you can input images and then analyze/process them (again, requires Pro, which you have to pay for). There are still lots of functions available for free users, though, and it's helped me many times on math homework that I couldn't figure out. It's a very underrated search engine that more people need to know about and utilize.

Strange decision to use Comic Sans as the font for the titles of the website headings.

I could not find a way to navigate away from the homepage to any deeper links with more information. One would expect that the left skyscraper section would be hotlinked to more examples.

One of the very few politics sites on the internet that is truly unbiased and is not pushing neither a right or a left-wing agenda.

It is a fantastic compendium, compiled twice daily - once in the morning and once in the afternoon - of all the news that is worth reading - in a read...

Born as a clickbait, arbitrage website completely devoid of any substance or content - it somehow took that concept and made it worse.

The Huffington Post

by tvanstee

A heavily biased so-called "news" resource - HuffPo is hypocritical in nearly every possible aspect. It preaches equality and diversity, and yet it's boardroom is nearly completely composed of white women. It claims to be strongly for diversity, and yet it practices no diversity of thought whatso...
