For Lyndel. A physical version. The slowest wheel is the fundimental of the wave. Each wheel is a harmonic, spinning at twice the rate of it's parent. The radius of each wheel is the amplitude of that harmonic, and finally, the angle of each wheel is the phase of that harmonic. A low-pass filter would reduce the amplitude of the faster-spinning (higher harmonics), while a high-pass filter would reduce the amplitude (radius) of the slower spinning wheels.
 
This is a less ugly Fourier Series demonstration. The wood circles represents the terms in the serie. The "size" of the circle is the magnitude of the corresponding coefficient. The initial angle is the phase of the coefficient. Each circle spins with an increasing speed (frequency). In this simulation, 10 coefficients were used (can you spot all of them? Why?)

Thanks to Blender and its powerful photon mapping called "cycles render" (also my CPU for holding 15h of rendering %-) . Its hope giving to know that such software is not only free... Its Open Source!

This was interesting. A man with an obsession, and his journey. Even ordinary people can do extraordinary things.
After Allen Hemberger ate at Chicago's Alinea restaurant, he began a project that lasted five years and countless hours crouched over his kitchen stove: He decided to remake every single dish in chef Grant Achatz's avante garde cookbook. Achatz is a pioneer of modernist cuisine, a style of cooking inspired by chemistry, technology, and deconstructivist art to create wildly inventive meals. In this short documentary by Foodie, director Dan Addelso...

So does lack of #Agile experience disqualify somebody from consideration for a job? Have we really gone that far?
