Originally shared by Matt AusternThis isn't new, but I happened to come across it recently: a transcript of Stephen Wolfram talking about special functions. Even if (like me) you aren't as much in love with cellular automata as he is, it's a nice semi-technical introduction to an interesting subject — a subject that's gets a lot less attention now than it did even a few decades ago.

It's the cultural shift that I find especially interesting.
