"Ancient Brain"

The World-Wide-Mind project development site has turned into a public site called "Ancient Brain". It uses JavaScript client-side graphics with Three.js and P5 and physics. Users can upload code and textures and music and 3D models.

The site is at ancientbrain.com. Go there. Get an account. And start coding!

On the Internet since 1987.

Wikipedia: Sometimes I link to Wikipedia. I have written something In defence of Wikipedia. It is often a useful starting point but you cannot trust it. Linking to it is like linking to a Google search. A starting point, not a destination. I automatically highlight in red all links to Wikipedia and Google search and other possibly-unreliable user-generated content.
