An early version of this text was presented, only slightly more linearly, at the 2010 Conference on College Composition and Communication in Louisville, KY. Additional material was generated for a Kinect/Twitter installation created with Anne Wysocki and Ryan Kornheisl for display at the 2011 CCCC in Atlanta, GA.

Processing Sketches Used in Demos

Phrases 9: Johndan Johnson-Eilola [download]. Based on bubblepop demo by Andy Best (http://andybest.net/2009/02/processing-opencv-tutorial-2-bubbles/) and code from Ira Greenberg's Bouncing Balls code (see citation above). Audio sigh is by the_justin (http://www.freesound.org/samplesViewSingle.php?id=9891) from Freesound.org (creative commons sampling 1.0 license).

qr_code_reader [download]: Johndan Johnson-Eilola. Based on core QRcode reader code originated by Tom Igoe and modified by Daniel Shiffman (http://www.shiffman.net/p5/pqrcode/). Modified to add in branching responses based on code read (passing URL to Web browser). Which, in hindsight, shouldn't have taken me two days to come up with.
