I enjoyed reading this. I knew of quartz composer but I never did anything with it.
I love visual tools and I think they are underutilized today. I cut my teeth in ~2005 with Houdini and Fusion which are both heavily graph / node based (and procedural).
Most recently I have been rekindling my love for visual programming and flow based programming and plan to spend some time in January and February doing more research around flow based programming for infrastructure management.
I plan to get this sort of info published on my website which I have neglected for half a decade or more but if you are interested in visual programming you might enjoy checking these out:
