Creative Coding: Randomizing Circles

I’m learning how to draw randomized shapes on the <canvas> right now, and love that I can create beautiful images by simply randomizing the xy-coordinates, the radius, and the color (using the excellent nice-color-palettes).

I can imagine this being useful for infographics, too. The color could represent a data point (like an app), the size could represent a property (like how often it tracked you or how much data it uses), and the xy-coordinates would be randomized in the image.
