It's actually kind of impressive just how bad it is.

Last night we learnt that our dear friend in fractals, Light Ska Iktomi, has passed away: Devious Journal Entry

She was the sweetest, kindest person you could hope to meet online, and really held the Aposhack community together for many years. Those years were some of the best in my life, mostly because of the fractal scene, and she was so so dear to many of us... I genuinely weep for her passing, she was a great one :(

Some more sad news unfortunately, is that I have left my job at Glare Technologies after 9 years. When I joined Glare, I handed over the rights to Chaotica (... it's that old), and they will continue to own it; I've personally never received money from Chaotica besides my normal salary. I'm still in discussions about how to possibly continue developing it, but for now its future seems quite uncertain :hmm:

Everything sucks :|

I'm doing a residency at Stochastic Labs in Berkeley until July 25th, then will be in Vancouver in August 11-16 giving a talk at SIGGRAPH (!!), finally touring around western USA again in September.

If you're in the area and wanna meet up lemme know! I'll try to organise a talk at UC Berkeley with a bunch of flame fractal people (Erik Reckase, FarDareisMai, Platinus, mfeemster) around mid July, that would be really cool if it happens :D

Interview

1 min read
Hi guys, it's been a while, no? ^^;

Recently I was contacted by Ricky Jarnagin aka DsyneGrafix to do an interview, as part of a series he did on some of the people involved in early Mandelbulb days. Of course I was delighted, and that's just gone up on his website: fractal.institute/an-interview…

Thanks Ricky! :ahoy:

Hi guys, the dates for the little fractal meetup in Amsterdam have been finalised: August 21-27, 2017

The confirmed list of people so far (besides me and others who don't want to be listed):

Erik Reckase (plus wife): flam3 and electric sheep co-author
FarDareisMai (plus husband)
technochroma and FractalSauce (the cute fractal couple!)

I'll update this journal if more people confirm they'll join us.


The basic plan is to meet up in the Amsterdam city centre somewhere and do a whole lot of fractaling together! Of course, Amsterdam being Amsterdam, there's a ton of great stuff to do including boat rides in the canals and... well, you know, Amsterdam stuff :blushes:

I'd personally really like to finally learn some basic fractal making techniques, and hopefully some of the more skilled fractal artists will be willing to do a little teaching session, something like a workshop... so bring your laptops!

Hope you can make it, and please spread the word! Thanks :)
