Tough to Match Nature's Coding Prowess

My last post touched on how I have been tracking my development "progress" on FamZoo. On a somewhat related note, I was reminded today of how humbling the pace and scope of development can be in nature. No matter how many times I witness it (some would argue too many ;-), I always marvel at the process of cognitive development in young human beings. At the end of February, I posted a few drawings from the youngest member of the FamZoo fan club. Here's a representative sample:

Very cute, yet still very simple and crude.

He's been cranking out drawings of increasing detail and complexity since then, and here are a couple from within the last week:

It is fascinating to compare and contrast the illustrations (you can click on each to get a closer view). In just under two months, the level of sophistication has progressed by orders of magnitude. If only I could match that kind of progress in my FamZoo development efforts!

The human body is truly an amazing, humbling, and inspiring system.

Those drawings are amazing. Seems like he likes to connect everything together. Once he starts using taskdb, it will be a well connected and cross-linked hierarchy of tasks !! ;)

"The human body is truly an amazing, humbling, and inspiring system." Amen !!
The human body is far too complex and perplexing than anything I have dealt with in software ;) There seems to be interesting work happening all the time in trying to simulate stuff, but it still seems so limited. See below in your spare time..
