There is a great PBS Nova on the history and applications of fractals. They also have the video online.

Fractal Video Feedback 5 Min of Fame

A long while ago I made some fractal video feedback images with a web cam and a mirror and posted them to my web page. Recently they got included on the cover of the academic journal "Fractals". The article in the journal is here, but unfortunately requires paid access. Here is the original post. Michael Frame teaches a class at Yale on fractals and was the person that found my page and included the images in one of his papers. He is currently being treated for cancer and if anyone should know him be sure to extend my thanks for sending me a copy of the journal.
