Geek Music - Jonathan Coulton

Found this link through a link to his song about cubicle zombies. When I got to the chorus I started squealing.

Take a point called Z in the complex plane
Let Z1 be Z squared plus C
And Z2 is Z1 squared plus C
And Z3 is Z2 squared plus C and so on
If the series of Z’s should always stay
Close to Z and never trend away
That point is in the Mandelbrot Set

You can download it for free. Go do so! And then tell all your friends. A number of them are also on iTunes, and you can get Re: Your Brains if you subscribe to his podcast. Does this guy do live shows? If so, I have to go!
