Programming Collective Intelligence: Building Smart Web 2.0 Applications

This book (which I've been reading, but haven't finished) explores a variety of techniques that many successful web sites/applications use to provide useful data to their users. Lots of good ideas and practical examples written in Python.

It's a 'computational knowledge engine'. I haven't played enough with it yet, but right off the bat, this thing is a bad-ass calculator (can a calculator be that?) You can put in any equation and you'll get the answer, graphs, rounding, scientific notation - all the good stuff. For normal folk, you can input any term you like. Unlike Google, you won't get a zillion pages of possibly related links. Wolfram Alpha delivers a single page with all the info you could want on your query. Here's the catch: It's designed for computational knowledge, meaning stuff computers can understand, So if you want to know FACTS - the distance between two cities, census data for a certain district, sports scores, birthdays, and of course, chemistry, math and physics, Wolfram Alpha may well top Google. Of course it's limited, and it can't answer everything. But if you just need to find a quick fact, you may want to give it as shot. Check out the example searches they display on the right side of the page. Did I mention it's free?
