Wolfram Inc is the software company that markets Mathematica, a
symbolic math package.  Today a guy from Wolfram Inc wrote to me
pointing out the existence of a talk by Stephen Wolfram with
``Foundations of Mathematics'' in the title.  Would anyone care to
read this and review it for FOM?

 Dear Prof. Simpson:
 Readers of the FOM mailing list may be interested in a talk that
 Stephen Wolfram gave in August 1999 entitled "Foundations of
 Mathematics and Mathematica".
 There is a transcript of the talk at
 The talk contains hints of material from part of Dr. Wolfram's
