[vzklrcoo] Live coding

Computer programming seems to be easily adapted to spectators: Screencasting, voice over.  Demonstrations, competitions.  Online or in real life with a projected display.

Inspired by the popularity of game play videos.  And Python spelling bee.

Probably need to program on small screen so that the letters don't get too small for viewers watching on a projected display.

Maybe the programmer switches among many virtual displays (e.g., the "screen" program) but the viewer can see all of them at once.  This avoids quick flips between virtual terminals causing confusion, vaguely similar to a spectator being able to see an overhead map view not visible to a player restricted to first person perspective.
