> The Coffee Companion is a slim periodical dedicated to stimulating

> goals:
> Introduce people to computer programming, for the sake of knowing how
> an aspect of modern ubiquity works.
> Visually represent concepts, to provide alternative routes to
> understanding.
> Entertain and inspire. A typical reader may pick up a complimentary
> Coffee Companion at a coffee house, be directed to download Processing
> on their laptop, type or copy and paste code from Coffee Companion
> website, play with variables, see correlations and have an experience
> with something they would not have otherwise encountered.
> Provide a cumulative purpose, a reason for readers to seek out your
> article month after month, perhaps by engaging them in the continuing
> construction of a creature, or realm–I will be particularly
> interested in solutions here.
> Feed the existing online Processing community, be the print-based
> gateway.
> I wish to meet these aims and try to fit whatever your own goals may

> expanded resources to fund a larger Processing internet component.
> Anyone that I hear from I will keep on record for fulfilling future

> Thank you for reading! I look forward to hearing from you.
