A New Kind of Science and The Information

Two books that I think I'd really enjoy but haven't purchased yet: Stephen Wolfram's A New Kind Of Science, and James Gleick's The Information (aww, there's no Wikipedia entry for that book yet).  They're the kind of geniuses who've crossed a certain line that really appeals to me.

I know that this isn't a fleshed-out blog post.  It's more of a public note-to-self.
