Wolfram has a habit of not giving a lot of citations or hiding them under the small print in order to make it seem like he or his company came up with everything in a void.

Although this article isn't by Wolfram I agree that the philosophy of his company seems to be to hype products like any normal consumer company does. The problem is this doesn't really work when your selling and academic product. No programming language management organization will claim they are "revolutionizing programming" without strong qualifiers.
