Studio Sketchpad : an open studio for creating beautiful code
“Studio SketchPad was created by Ari Bader-Natal to bring the power of Etherpad to the Processing community.
Studio SketchPad aims to be a open studio for individuals learning to sketch beautiful code on the web canvas.
That’s pretty vague. How about something more concrete…
Studio SketchPad was named after the two web technologies on which the application is built: the Sketch fromProcessing and the Pad from EtherPad. (The Studio metaphor used throughout the site was inspired by the writings of John Seely Brown, which I’ll save for another post.) EtherPad is used as a lightweight development environment for authoring (or co-authoring) small visual programs written in the Processing language.”
