Tales From the Internet: Volcanoes to Time control by Nomad

A mixed bag of interesting links from the internet this week:

  • Some good advice on working smarter, not harder.
  • A 2D platformer which allows you to control time - Braid. It's one of the subtlest games we've ever played. On one level it's a basic Mario-esque rescue the princess type thing, but there's real depth to the story which includes themes of obsession.
  • Powerful photos of a volcanic eruption in Chile.
  • Interesting tech art from Kinetica 2011.
  • Some good information on proper URL design.
  • Riak - a nosql database with replication built in from the ground up. I'm looking forward to playing with this.
