Given informal and positive comments about my automatic “mind map” experiments I have decided to write a Java applet demonstrator.

Having no experience of Java Applet writing (or Java for that matter) I have decided to not learn another very similar language and go a lazier route, namely via processing. Ok, it is basically Java, but it removes the irritation of needing to read up all about swing etc. just to draw a line and have a simple update loop.

Tonight I played with traer physics and libraries and reckon with some minor tweaks and a bit of networking magic I can get the random arboretum demo to fit my needs.

How the world waits in anticipation…
