I just found out Benoît Mandelbrot died the other day, which is super sad times. Best known for his creation of the Mandelbrot Set, a type of fractal that repeats itself infinitely no matter at what “resolution” you view the image, it turns out he even coined the phrase ‘fractal’. So yeah, very smart fellow. Even if, like me, you’re not overly fond of geometry, you’ve got to respect what he did for the field. The world is less for his passing.
