This is great - we are in dire need of good tutorials and this seems 
like a good
start!  I see that you have made several additions since last night and 
linked the
blog from the wiki (I was just about to do the latter for you).  Thank 
you for taking
the initiative and time to get this effort going.

There are others who have made tutorials on various topics, some of 
are linked from the wiki, but there isn't really a central effort 
(perhaps until now)
to make and collect tutorials.  We would like to encourage that 
everyone who
has made demos/tutorials to post them (and to make news ones), through
Gary's blog and the ChucK wiki (perhaps Gary can coordinate this 
Once we get a good set of tutorials, we can include them in the 
distribution and
organize them online.

Thanks again Gary and others who are making stuff more lucid and (gasp)
documented.  (!!)

Hmm, there is one (very) small typo on the blog that I should point out 
only out of conscience, hah): the page currently says that ChucK is 
developed by two professors (and their students) - almost true.  ChucK 
the work of -one- professor (that would be Perry) and his students (I 
in this second group), some of whom are aspiring to be, but are not yet,
professors.  (But thanks!)
