Drawing Data with Processing

Dipping my toes into making drawings from data.

I've started into Jer Thorp's great introduction, in which he walks you through pulling a column of numbers from a Google spreadsheet into some neat drawings. In this case, the data are a set of numbers he asked of his Twitter followers. Below, I've plotted the frequency of numbers from 0 to 100 as a bar chart.

Numbers, from 0-100, picked out of the air by @blprnt's Twitter followers. 17, 37 and 42 were most common.

Jer even provides a Processing sketch you can download to grab numbers from simple Google spreadsheets. Nice.
