When I google "integrate sin(x) log(x) wolfram alpha" the first hit is
the W|A output, but with the two digits appended to "www" by W|A for
load balancing purposes. I wonder if this automated "assimilation" of
W|A by Google has been anticipated by the W|A team. Probably they
would at least want search queries to come to www.wolframalpha and not
www39.wolframalpha... and of course one may debate if Google is
sufficiently human to be allowed to use W|A at all, even if it does so
indirectly and on my behalf.

In the end Google and others like it could end up benefiting greatly
from the new content W|A and its users are creating with computable
facts.
