Interesting/annoying article in Forbes

Interesting/annoying article in Forbes about DNA as code. Starts off interesting, then veers into a we’re-not-so-smart meditation on the shortcomings of science and then ends with a fanfare about how maybe Stephen Wolfram has figured out the secret of the universe after all. This is the same author (Michael S. Malone) who wrote a hagiographic piece about Wolfram in Forbes a few months ago. Give me a break. Between Wolfram’s automata and Dean Kamen’s Ginger, there’s nothing left for the rest of us but sit on the couch and watch Survivor.
