100%  WOLFRAM  Went Overboard Looking For Random Automata? Maybe. 
Angela Brett, referring to Stephen Wolfram and his huge tome 'A New Kind of Science' on cellular automata and similar constructs. I don't think there's really such a thing as going overboard investigating something in science... even if the hypothesis turns out to be completely wrong, somebody has to thoroughly investigate it so that we know it's wrong, and more than likely they'll discover something that is useful in the process. At the very least, absurdly wrong ideas make good material for http://OldScientist.com (if only anyone had time to write for it.)
