As you probably know (having found this page), I wrote a chapter for O’Reilly Media’s new book ‘Beautiful Visualization’. I hope you’ve enjoyed the chapter so far, and I hope I haven’t done too embarrassing of a job standing up to such data visualization legends as I share the book with.
On this page you’ll find the promised downloads and resources, as well as any updates, etc. that may be needed as things progress. If you have any questions that aren’t covered here, you can always try sending me an e-mail – I will try to get back to you as soon as possible.
NYTimes API Processing Library

All of the examples below are .zip files containing one or more Processing sketch. Just unzip the files and put the contents into your Processing sketchbook directory.

Want to learn more?
I’ve written a number of tutorials on Processing and related topics. You can find them over on my Source Code & Tutorials Page. If you’re just getting started with Processing, I can’t say enough good things about Daniel Shiffman’s book, ‘Learning Processing’. Also invaluable is openprocessing.org, a vast library of open-source Processing sketches contributed by users like you.
