Nice!  Source code somewhere?  Always good to have more examples of shader implementations to learn from.

Thanks for starting this up +Kevin Clarke, good to have a space here.  I'm not on here all the time either but it's a better community structure than anything the likes of FB would give us.

If you're in the Boston area, come see my colleague Patsy Baudoin and co-author speak about their new book about creative computing.

"This book takes a single line of code—the extremely concise BASIC program for the Commodore 64 inscribed in the title—and uses it aa a lens through which to consider the phenomenon of creative computing and the way computer programs exist in culture."

"Data is variously described as the oxygen of the digital economy or the new raw material of the 21st century."-Nigel Shadbolt

Shadbolt, in the @Guardian:"A great deal of the data we need to run our lives is generated, collected or held by the government. In the past, governments have either hold on to this data or else charged for it. But if the web has taught us anything it is the power of open content and unanticipated reuse. Open data is simply the latest manifestation of this trend but it has the potential to be one of the most transformative."
