Benoit Mandelbrot Died Yesterday

Steve Fritzinger passed this on to me that Benoit Mandelbrot died yesterday.

At Sun Microsystems, we used to have a fractal program that allowed you to turn on the number of processors in the system or to farm the calculations out to systems on the network that had a fractal daemon waiting to receive data and then return the answer.   It was the classic parallel program.
