From: Interview by Loch Adamson, The New York Times

After A New Kind of Science, do you have a follow-up project planned?

I’ve been meaning to take a vacation for years, but I think I’m actually about to enter a tool-building phase again. I see a number of directions from the science that I’ve done, and one that I like rather a lot is approaches to fundamental physics, sort of trying to find a final, fundamental theory of physics. But to do that, I need some tools I don’t have yet. Also, there are many technological applications of the science I’ve tried to make, and that’s something that I will probably spend time on, because, well, those things are fun, and they’re useful.
