Good ol' Memories! I totally missed that Joshua Davis/James Cruz ported their open source library HYPE framework from AS3 to Processing/JS in 2013.

I used Hype AS3 for some generative design projects back in 2009 after seeing the magic of legendary Joshua Davis live on stage =)

I totally agree with +Daniel Burka  that a smart entrepreneur would put design and engineering salaries on par, and be sure to explain this to prospective designers. Not only will designers appreciate the competitive salary — they’ll also appreciate that the company values design as much as engineering.

How to think big, and how to use the key strategies of Dr. Peter Diamandis' friends and investors, including Elon Musk, Jeff Bezos, Richard Branson, and Larry Page.

How do they create maximum leverage? How do they think differently?
