hi kyle, all.

i would be down to be a mentor or help in the mentorship program, though i
won't be back in new york for a couple more months.

i think one way we could get more beginners to contribute is to make
something like OpenProcessing for OF. it would double as a great learning
resource as well. maybe now with emscripten this is more practical.
