Like a Hitchcock movie. I realize that wasn't the point, but it was all I could think of.

How elegant. How true.

Glad to be flocking with you, P3T3 (though I did take umbrage with that line about 'eating from trash dumps' ;-)

Captivating stuff. Wouldn't that make a great screensaver.

Thanks for sharing P3T3.

sam - absolutely... if you could make it a rule based screensaver - e.g. each bird following seven other birds... and then insert disturbances to perturb their flight path. done sufficiently, this would provide unending complexity and variation that your eye would never grow tired of watching. however, your CPU might get warmest when you're not using it :-) of course if something is off just a little, the result would be a different emerging behavior that could be quite surprising ... and then it would be back to the simulation drawing boards.
