Today's example is from @zoecello. I follow her because I love her music, she presents an interesting intersection between information technology and music and last but not least, she's left IT to be a professional musician, which is something I aspire to one day. This tweet is exemplary of the type of serendipity that I find using twitter:
@zoecello: Today's task: make a demo piece of music for Robert Hodgin (http://www.flight404.com) to work with
The name and the website sounded faintly familiar, so I followed the link to flight404. The site is the blog of Robert Hodgin who is doing very cool visualization stuff with Processing. Even better was a nugget about Processing code to read and render SRTM .hgt elevation files. This site is the portfolio of Kyle McDonald who also had some neat structured light examples. I really haven't had this type of productive linkage in quite a while.
