Just to nitpick: the first flowchart is self-similar, but it doesn't make it a fractal. Fractals have Hausdorff dimension greater than their topological dimension. This flowchart has the same Hausdorff dimension as any other flowchart.
Tu put it differently: fractals have self-similar details around all of their points, not just one (in this sense, Mandelbrot Set is not a fractal -- but its border is).

Nah, it's not a fractal, after 7 steps you get pixels :-D I've made a real one for you. Enjoy: http://people.ksp.sk/~martin/fractal/

@Martin, your creation is disturbingly addictive - nice job! :)

Also, this reminds me a bit of the xkcd with the flowchart about learning/knowing how to read a flowchart. Yay for flowcharts!

inspired by you?
If yes, then I think you deserve to be mentioned there!
