How to bridge the gap between a visitor's phone and the Particle Cloud (which controls the display): Javascript. 

JavaScript is a programming language that adds interactivity to websites. 

It was invented by Brendan Eich, co-founder of the Mozilla project, the Mozilla Foundation, and the Mozilla Corporation. He created it in ten days, in 1995, when he was working at Netscape. 

So a good place to start to figure it out: the JavaScript Basics page on the Mozilla Developers Network.

Reading in the above, I can see that a significant part of the JavaScript code I'm using consists of variables, which are containers that you can store values in. 

var moveItFunctionName = "moveit";

and 

var http = new XMLHttpRequest();

And all these variables (I counted 5) are collected inside a function.

Now I just have to play around with onclick.

Lastly, I'll need some background on

http.open("POST", url, true);

and

http.send();

On closer examination, "http" is a variable. So that narrows my query.
