From the cross-published site:Great stuff - I am going to make one! I have used the Golden Rectangle/Mean for many years in designing furniture and organizing rooms etc but never thought of creating a simple gauge. Now I wonder if I can be precise enough.I used to use a movie (yes, 16mm - how quaint!) in my early days called Donald in Mathmagic Land. It was great and included all this stuff. Since it was animation it would probably be still useable today I bet and of course the character is still amusing. It was done in 1959 and contains quite a lot of great Math starting points. It is now available on DVD. Geoff Day on Tuesday, 29 January 2008, 07:35 EST
I have published instructions for a construction of the gauge using Sketchpad.
Found an interesting application of the golden ratio at this page - the Amen break.
Here is a contrarian view peppered with quotes from Devlin.http://www.fastcodesign.com/3044877/the-golden-ratio-designs-biggest-myth
