Ultimate cloud or crazy idea

Listening to Leo Laporte on the way to work today, I learned about Wolfram Alpha - computational knowledge engine. The concept is fascinating and I've been playing entering all kinds of nouns, expressions, verbs, etc. The results are amazing. It would be very interesting to see if the technologies that are being used to render the results evolve to include, JavaFX, Flash or the like.


 I'd also love to learn about the architecture of the (computational) service. I know that they are using MySQL as their database, however I have no data on their data center. It will be interesting to see if this research influences the future direction of Google.
