I've already blogged elsewhere about hypercomplex numbers and 3D Mandelbrot solids.
That post included a pic of the nicest 3D Mandelbrot that I've come across so far, and I included it in the book on page 118 (as Figure 23.1). Anyway, I thought it'd be nice to do a quick animation and put it on YouTube (although, when I say "quick", it took a spare laptop two weeks to generate the original 45 frames of video).
When it came time to upload it, I realised that YouTube user xlace had already found the same solid and uploaded an animation of it back in 2009!
I actually prefer xlace's version, but I suppose that it's nice to have two.
