Processing

After posting about the magnetosphere visualizer for iTunes, I felt like Processing deserved it’s own mention.

For those who are unfamiliar, it’s an open source programming language and environment for people who want to program images, animation, and interactions. It was created by Ben Fry and Casey Reas (whom Mike and I had the good fortune of meeting at a conference last year). He gave the most inspirational presentation I’ve ever seen from a developer. He literally elevates programming to an artform.

So anyway, I’ve been following it since the beta release a couple years ago, and feel strongly that it would be a great platform for our designers to collaborate with our programmers.

…just trying to keep the Directed Study dream alive.
