I am not a mathematician, but I am blown away by the features' possibilities, of CDF.

First watch this short 74-seconds intro video: http://www.wolfram.c...df_intro/index2.html

and maybe then this "full" 19½-minutes video explanation: http://www.wolfram.c...asts/announcing_cdf/

Get a free CDF player: http://www.wolfram.com/cdf-player/
The player is at version 8, so all this is apparently not as new as I first imagined.

Computable Document Format (CDF)

Documents come alive with the power of computation
Powering the next generation of interactive documents, blogs, reports, presentations, articles, books, courseware, information and knowledge applications, and more. Learn more about CDF; explore uses and examples » http://www.wolfram.com/cdf/

Includes plugin for Internet Explorer, Firefox, Chrome, Opera, & Safari. Other platform?
More Christians have been killed for their faith in the last 70 years, than in the previous 1900 years combined. Racism due to religion is now more common, than racism due to race - and no religious group around the world is persecuted more than Christians.

Watched the videos.  Very interesting.  Wonder what the chances are that this will become mainstream?
