Stochasticity #1 – Random Walkers

Launch the poem. Fork it on GitHub.

I’ve started a new series of programming poems exploring the idea of stochasticity. What is stochasticity? It’s a fancy word for the process of random events. The opposite of a stochastic event is a deterministic event. Computers are inherently deterministic machines, but I’m interested in the stochastic process for visualization and processing. Heady stuff, right? Well I’m trying to make visually appealing pieces that let me explore these ideas so that I can have an intuitive grasp of these concepts.
