Dear Em's and JIm

One of my hopes is that it will allow me to collaborate with artists who
have greater visual skills are more focused on the visual -- facilitating
a collaboration that draws together different skills, in which everyone
can understand and work with the code.

Yes processing is a fun little application - although I suspect for introductory programming,
It's not going to make the grade. I use flash and actionscript for introductory programing
because of it's verbose and natural ( like english) syntax.

Processing is one of many cute little graphic apps that produce narrow visual expressions.
Check BDD( http://www.bermuda.ch/bureaudestruct/bddesigner/index.html -authored in Director )
out for producing 1960's swiss graphics. I use these applications to explore the inevitable imposition
of style by produced by graphic applications, in an attempt to lure students away from photoshop filter frenzy.
