Hey there, I'm Michael P. Geraci, a front-end engineer. I made this for fun over New Year's 2011. It was created with jQuery/Coffescript and Canvas.

What is Conway's Game of Life?
The game of life is a cellular automaton created by John Conway in 1970. It simulates the life of cells through generations based on a few simple rules:
If a cell has fewer than 2 neighbors, it dies (from starvation)
If a cell has 2 or 3 neighbors, it lives on to the next generation
If a cell has 4 or more neighbors, it dies (from overpopulation)
If a dead cell has 3 living neighbors, it grows (birth)
Thanks for playing!
