While I was cranking out my recent blog post on Plasma, I came about this definition of plasma on wikipedia. We all know that when Aaron came up with the name Plasma he was (5%) thinking about how to viscerally define and relay his goals for a new desktop (energy, fluidity, etc) and then (95%) thinking about how cool it sounded.
The wikipedia page has a really interesting set of properties that define/describe a plasma. Interesting enough that I made a corresponding image in the 15 minutes between returning from swimming tonight and going to bed. So here’s about 13 minutes’ worth of work (and 2 left to type this entry). Kinda interesting considering what it takes to build a new community rather visible so early in its nascent state. The original size can be found here.
