Processing.js has been around for a little over a year… it came out in May of 2008, but it really seems to be getting some traction. And I just discovered it this month, so it is new to me. Below are some resouces that I have found helpful:

A lot of great examples: http://www.hyper-metrix.com/processing-js/docs/index.php
I am sure there is going to be a ton of cool stuff that can be made with this…
- The I think some charts and graphs would be great (again no text rendering for now). Have you seen Ben Fry’s book on data visualization: Data Visualization by Ben Fry . A lot of the examples in this book should be portable.
- Of course there is the art of processing
- Games anyone?
