Bookmarks for 20140226

The careful arrangement of strings, bells, lenses and mirrors I employ to wake me at the appointed time definitely did not work this morning. However, it's a sunny day so here's some bookmarks.

Data modelling with MongoDB (general topic as I've been busy with re-writing bits of Xizi just recently):

Warren Ellis has a new, epic looking graphic novel out (shortly), TREES:

Some Kickstarters of note that I've backed recently:

TimeWatch - Gumshoe and Time Travel RPG thingummy that did ridiculously well:
"You've got a time machine, high-powered weapons and a whole lot of history to save. Welcome to TimeWatch!"
https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/kevinkulp/timewatch-gumshoe-investigative-time-travel-rpg

Project: Dark - A stealth-based tabletop RPG that sounds amazing and that also smashed its funding goal:
"Play fantastic thieves in a fantastical city in this new stealth-adventure tabletop roleplaying game."
https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/wordstudio/project-dark

Hello Ruby - A delightful, almost perfect children's book that teaches kids the basics of programming. I cannot recommend this highly enough.
"Hello Ruby is a children’s book that teaches programming fundamentals through stories and kid-friendly activities."
https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/lindaliukas/hello-ruby

Coffee, Cake and Kisses - Fundraising for the new iteration of the Coffee, Cake and Kink space. Not totally sure about the new name but I understand why they've had to do it; their heart is in the right place and I hope they make it:
"A relationships-focused social design space. Tease your taste buds & stimulate your senses in the place that makes you go mmm."

Also: I've been listening to The Black Keys entire discography for about 5 days now. It helps.
