And now... the animated version!
Basically, it is rendering 600 circles randomly on a letterform. For each circle, it then connects it to any circle that is within a certain proximity (25px for this).
For the rest of the frames, it moves the circles randomly plus or minus 2 pixels (as long as it still stays inside the letterform) and then redraws the lines depending on it's proximity to the other circles.
It can actually render this in almost real time.

This is really cool. I'd love to have time to learn this. Like x10!
Very cool... could this be a trend in several years—cinemagram-like identities?
@Brad Hall I wouldn't mind if that happened!
@Mathew Lucas Thanks!
@Wayne Dahlberg It's actually pretty easy, Processing is pretty enjoyable to use and learn. There's only about 300-400 lines of code for this.
@Geof Crowl No problem! Are you new to learning Processing then? Any resources for someone new to help pick it up — it's one of my New Year's resolutions!
@Mathew Lucas I've fiddled around with it for awhile now; on and off. I'm by no means an expert.
A good place to start is the processing book by Ben Fry and Casey Reas. The creators. It's a bit dated, but it's one of my favorites.
I've also heard that Learning Processing is a great book as well.
Honestly, I think one of the best ways is to just download it, refer to the processing reference and just start making some stuff.
@Geof Crowl Thanks a lot for getting back with such great info. I'll get those books on my Xmas list.
My only drawback is having no coding background at all other than HTML/CSS but I suppose the diving force of creathing something that could be half as awesome as this will keep me going!
@Mathew Lucas No problem! Just stick with it, and I'm sure you'll be fine. Processing is a great way to get into coding.
