Several people (Casey Reas, Daniel Shiffman, Marius Watz) have been writing about the Code Tree project. Check it out. It’s a repository for artists that work with code, so that everyone can learn from each other. It looks like a great project, and the contributors so-far look like a competent bunch.
I’ve been trying to build a Happy Code Farm for our various doodles and techniques at the Atelier Hypermedia, but so far I’ve yet to get any serious contributions from the students. It’s also pretty lowly compared to the aforementioned project which is far more serious stuff.
