7th Assignment - Protocol

I wanted to explore how messages are spread all over a network and visualize how all nodes are connected to each other - like conversations or rumors.There are 2 rules:
1. send msg to every neighbors
2. send msg to only one node that is connected

And then I played with different topologies and also highlighting also the connections, not only the nodes. I'm still working on trying to send several messages simultaneously.

Process: a message is send to nodes
When the msg is sended: user chooses each node is starting to send the msg - mousePressed
Visual Feedback- send msg: the node bumps - like it's emitting something
Visual Feedback- received msg: the node bumps - like it's receiving something


Fully Connected: send a message by clicking in on of the nodes. Each node sends a msg to the all neighbors nodes. Press a to reset!

Distributed Network:
send a message by clicking in on of the nodes. Each node sends a msg to the all neighbors nodes. Press a to reset!

Edges also are highlighted when a message is sended:

Delicious Account ( all connections): send a message by clicking in on of the nodes. Each node sends a msg to the all neighbors nodes. Press a to reset!
Amazing how with 4 clicks all persons on the network receive the message

New Rule: each node only can send the msg to one other node
Send a message by clicking in on of the nodes. Each node sends a msg only to the first node it connects. Press a to reset!
