      oh so pretty

    2. Jonathan Says:

      It was pretty. A large school swimming slowly in circles under a bridge.

    3. Shannon Love Says:

      A good example of emergent behavior arising out of collective action of cellular automata. Without any central control a beautiful pattern emerges as each fish acts on cues available to it.

      Just like the free-market.
