--- Comment #1 from Luke Kenneth Casson Leighton <lkcl at lkcl.net> ---
cole this is a simple one to start with:


the purple additions is an "AND" gate, which has straight sides, straight
input base, and a semi-circular output.

not to be confused with an "OR" gate, which has curved (arc) sides, and
a concave arc on the input.

the idea also is to provide a series of "library" SVGs, containing
the basic "gates" - AND, OR, NAND, NOR, XOR - actually you might find
these online already... oh look what a huge surprise:


so simply use those: literally cut/paste and, Elle, feel free to splurge
out on as much psychedelic use of bright primary colour as you dare, but
keep it *consistent*.  i.e. use the colour of the wires to actually _mean_
something.  make the group of wires going through "opcode" fluorescent
pink, make the little boxes with the arrow inside them (known as "latches")
deep purple, and so on.  don't change the colour of the wires half way along
their length.

the idea here is to make people's left and right brain hemispheres engage
without necessarily burning out their eyes.

where SVG images do not exist on wikimedia (such as the latch, and that
upside-down truncated pyramid called "computation") first make those,
separately, add them to a library (Cole will help create the wiki page)
and *then* cut/paste them into the diagram.
