R.I.P. Benoit Mandelbrot

Oh yes, he had many "character flaws", but don't we all? He was on the bleeding edge of financial research, and was one of the first to wade out into the ever-changing ocean of the markets and at least attempt to systemitize and conquer its fathoms. Anyone who gives us pause to look at the world in a different manner earns my admiration. He fit this criteria.

NYT eulogy.
