Adventures in Processing: the Mouse (and posting Processing Sketches into WordPress)

So, moving on from my robot to mouse interactivity, I thought I’d post my riff on this example from the book I’m using, only to discover that loading Processing “sketches” into WordPress blogs is a difficult affair. Luckily, as usual, one of my many betters has solved the problem and posted his solution. Morten Skogly’s answer to the problem is here. I chose some ugly colors for this, but anyway, if this works in your browser on your computer, I’d love to know about it. Thanks! Oh, and if it’s not obvious, drag your mouse across the green square…

    Thanks Dani. Not much there, I know, but it helps to know you can see what I see on my mac.
