Similar but different- focus on real-time data (rather than media) manipulation.
Same sense of collective endeavour and development- conflates object and process - software platform and artistic output- with a strong emphasis on OPEN FREE etc..in the traditional sense that code is to be shared and does not require any engagement with proprietory systems....
