Wolfram Demonstrations Project: 10,000 Apps Strong

Today we're excited to announce that the Wolfram Demonstrations Project has crossed the 10,000 Demonstrations mark and is now supporting the latest versions of the Wolfram Language and CDF Player. Launched in 2007, the Demonstrations Project is the largest open web repository of peer-reviewed interactive knowledge apps. With examples ranging from elementary math to medical image processing, the site fulfills a need for professionally vetted, sophisticated, and easy-to-use resources for students, educators, publishers, and anyone looking to communicate technical concepts with graphic clarity.

The Wolfram Data Drop Is Live!

Where should data from the Internet of Things go? We've got great technology in the Wolfram Language for interpreting, visualizing, analyzing, querying and otherwise doing interesting things with it. But the question is, how should the data from all those connected devices and everything else actually get to where good things can be done with it? Today we're launching what I think is a great solution: the Wolfram Data Drop. When I first started thinking about the Data Drop, I viewed it mainly as a convenience---a means to get data from here to there. But now that we've built the Data Drop, I've realized it's much more than that. And in fact, it's a major step in our continuing efforts to integrate computation and the real world. So what is the Wolfram Data Drop? At a functional level, it's a universal accumulator of data, set up to get---and organize---data coming from sensors, devices, programs, or for that matter, humans or anything else. And to store this data in the cloud in a way that makes it completely seamless to compute with.
