+ - 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!"
