Submission + - Benoit Mandelbrot Rumored to have Passed Away->

Beetle B. writes: "According to Nassim Nicholas Taleb's home page, Benoit Mandelbrot has passed away at the age of 85. At the moment, no news site has reported it officially, though. I first learned of the Mandelbort set while reading Arthur C. Clarke's The Ghost From The Grand Banks. Soon after, I got hold of the best fractal generation software of the day: Fractint, and ran it for long periods of time on my XT, exploring the beautiful world that Mandelbrot, among others, had opened up for me. That it was only on a 4 color CGA did not deter me!"
