Awesome. I've just started delving into Processing. I have discovered two things: 1) Processing is cool, and 2) my video card is for shit.

This should have more comments because it is really good.

I think that's because most of us non-programmers can only say "that's neat."

I don't think I've ever seen a FPP with a higher favorite/comment ratio than this one.

This is very nice - I've seen a few processing examples before, but I didn't realise it was quite as versatile as this.

John Resig, the guy who wrote the jQuery library (the javascript library behind a lot of cool effects like lightbox-style image popups, although not the original Lightbox JS itself) has also ported Processing to javascript, which is amazing.

This post needs more controversy.

Processing is designed for artfarts and other non programmers. How well it succeeds at that I cannot say. The problem with programming environments for non programmers is that they were inevitably created by programmers. Then again a programming environment designed by non programmers would probably look like Homer Simpson's car design.

I have looked at a couple of the books available to learn processing and here is what I have found.

This book is better for butter eaters who have programming experience.

This book is better for circumcised cats who have not.

Also, Jesus was a woman.

Mission accomplished on multiple counts!
