Announcing Wolfram SystemModeler 4

The world of modeling libraries and areas covered by SystemModeler just got bigger. And with the Library Store we expect to expand on the available libraries continuously. Interestingly, we’ve interacted with many R&D groups that have in-depth knowledge of different areas—from tire modeling for off-road machinery, to chemical reactors, to classes of disease pathways, etc.—for which libraries don’t yet exist. With the SystemModeler Library Store, there is an actual marketplace where such knowledge—if made into a library—can readily be made available. There really is no limit to the areas that can be made accessible with well-designed model libraries.

Crime In Boystown: Vivid Descriptions

Wednesday, 6:04AM — In the 4200 block of Kenmore, a white man who was involved in a fight earlier has returned and won’t stop ringing the doorbell. He has black hair. He’s bleeding from the head. He’s wearing Bart Simpson underwear.

…Update, 6:06AM — Now he’s naked, lying on the hood of a car, still bleeding from the head, and he’s masturbating.

Hey, we’ve all had nights like that.
