Tron-style dashboard shows Wikipedia and GitHub streams

GitHub stream

As a fun learning exercise, Rob Scanlon made a dashboard that shows GitHub and Wikipedia changes in the style of graphics in Tron: Legacy.

Hello User. This is a reproduction of the graphics in the boardroom scene in Tron: Legacy. If you have not seen that movie, check out this background material on the making of that scene before proceeding.

To make this a bit more fun, the boardroom is configured to visualize live updates from Github and Wikipedia, with more streams to come. Click on a stream in the window to the right to continue.

Type "cd github" and "run github.exe" for maximum pleasure.
