The Cook Book
Recipe for the week of February 6 - 12
Spaghetti or Fingerprints?
- It was great to welcome all the new visitors to my Kitchen on
Tuesday, January 31, when it was selected as
Cool Site of the Day.
Thanks to the many folks who sent me feedback using the handy link on my
signature page. And thanks especially to Glenn Daniels for choosing
- Predictably, I am experiencing letdown at no longer being cool,
although traffic in the Kitchen continues to be lively. This week I want
to focus on getting CAM8 back up and running after an invasion of the
UW-Madison Mathematics Department by hackers from hell. Also, Bob Fisch
and I are putting the finishing touches on the second beta release of our
CA experimentation software WinCA. So I thought I'd offer a soup
based on the same recipe as last week, but cooked a lot longer in a
much larger pot.
- As you can see, the self-organization of aligned wave fragments is
even more pronounced. A couple of folks mentioned last week that they
thought my macaroni looked more like fingerprints. The
congnoscenti refer to this week's stage as spaghetti, but I think
all will agree that the new soup is even more, shall we say, digital.
