As one of Vuo's developers, I work on Vuo's engine (the thing that makes compositions run), work on nodes, and write documentation. You'll see me on the forums answering people's questions about Vuo.
I've been developing apps and frameworks for several years (since I was in college). Pre-Vuo projects include Kineme Quartz Composer plugins, iOS apps for education, an app that analyzes photographs of tomato slices, and software to help people with disabilities use talking keyboards.
I enjoy using Vuo to make live music visuals. My hope for Vuo is that it will grow into a community of people of diverse backgrounds and identities making lots of different artistic, useful, unique, goofy, beautiful, crafty, wonderful compositions.
After testing some different configurations of the anti-spam thing, we ended up reducing the wait time to 1 second, which stops robots but doesn't get in the way of humans, at least not the humans on the Vuo team :)
Hey, Alastair (@usefuldesign). I appreciate your wanting to prioritize. For deciding priorities, we (Team Vuo) use the feature request voting system to make decisions. So if you don’t think a feature request should be high priority, all you have to do is not vote for it. Keep in mind that, though a certain feature may not be important to you, it may be important to other people.
