Wolfram fail


So Wolfram want people to produce free content for their demonstrations project. Fine. But sending spam where they misquote the title of my paper isn't the best way to get things done. And if anyone is interested, the full Python source code is already available here. I used SymPy for some symbolic manipulations. It's all free and open source.

Dear Carlo Hamalainen,

Your article, "An enumeration of equilateral triangle", caught the attention of one of my colleagues, who thought that it could be developed into an interesting Demonstration to add to the Wolfram Demonstrations Project.

The Demonstrations Project, launched alongside Mathematica 6 in May 2007, is a collection of over 5,000 interactive Demonstrations that cover myriad subjects, interests, and skill levels. The Demonstrations are free to download and manipulate thanks to Mathematica Player, which is also free, available at:

Building a Demonstration is a simple and straightforward process. If you have little or no experience with Mathematica, you may want to attend one of our free seminars. In our S14 seminar, "Creating Demonstrations," members of the Demonstrations team guide you step-by-step through the authoring process. Learn more about this seminar at:

Your published Demonstrations will appear on the Wolfram Demonstrations Project website, which averages over 50,000 hits a week.

We welcome any questions you might have, and look forward to seeing a Demonstration submission from you soon.

Best regards,

Marty McKee
