 sci.fractals FAQ 
  Fractals also describe many realworld objects, such as clouds, mountains, turbulence, coastlines, roots, branches of trees, blood vesels, and lungs of animals, that do not correspond to simple geometric shapes. 
  Roughly, fractal dimension can be calculated by taking the limit of the quotient of the log change in object size and the log change in measurement scale, as the measurement scale approaches zero. 
  Topics include: challenges of using fractals in the classroom, new ways of generating art and music, the use of fractals in clothing fashions of the future, fractal holograms, fractals in medicine, fractals in boardrooms of the future, fractals in chess.
