Description

The Standard Model describes all the known fundamental particles and interactions (except gravity). There are variations on a standard way to display these particles, but they are all quite similar and perhaps not the most illuminating for non-experts.

I would like to design a new layout in a more interactive format using more modern browser display tools. I'm a particle physicist by training and would love to work with designers on this project. I'm very inspired by the infographics of the NYT and elsewhere. I can code up something in processing, but HTML5/Javascript/Dart programmers would be very welcome!

I've created a github repository for the weekend's fun! These are just some processing examples to get people started, but feel free to contribute code from other languages if you like!
