>At the end of the Caltech program the moderator, Steven Koonin, asked the panelists to predict whether in 20 years Wolfram's A New Kind of Science will be viewed as a paradigm shift. The unanimous answer was "no." One panelist said, "it is not an approach that has much promise," while another noted that Wolfram's ideas are the "Emperors New Clothes."
We are approaching the 20 year mark and they were resoundingly correct.
>Wolfram tried to get in the last word by stating that this reaction from the panelists is just what one would expect from a paradigm shift.
