All code that I write is GNU GPL'd, including Pd patches, so do
whatever you want as long as you share your modifications.

These are quite nice, very good interactive + visual examples. I have
a couple of comments:
- Nice use of standardized elements! We should have a set of standard
elements for all Pd docs and tutorials. There is a patch that I
started with this idea in mind, I view it as a wiki, so people should
add more standard elements to it: (in CVS)
- I think the guts should always be hidden in a subpatch. Only the
essential elements to illustrate the principal should be on screen.
That way it makes the overall page look much less intimidating. The
idea is to have each patch as simple as possible so that its very
approachable. Then, if people are curious, they can open the guts.
- I then all help and tutorial patches should all fit on 800x600 at
least, maybe even 640x480. Pd can run on old computers, which may be
in use in many parts of the world. Ideally, the Pd tutorials would be
visible on a computer than can run Pd.
I posted some content to the wiki that Ben started a while back:
I think this should be the center of this discussion so we all can keep
track of things.
