Last friday, there was a presentation In Leuven ( Flanders ) on chess engines by Robert Houdart, the Flemish author of Houdini. You can read a summary here.
It is in Dutch, but I am sure you will get the point. Really interesting stuff !
Interesting is also a grat Rybka - Houdini game :
The commentator gets lyrical about Houdini's romantic style, allowing old gambits ( such as the Blackmar Diemer... ) to be revived.
