Linkee-poo is aching and far from home, save me

Tobias Buckell's kickstarter project for Apocalypse Ocean has made it's goal. Congrats, Toby. Now, if we get it to 125% funding, we also get a cool map.

Elizabeth Bear with her photos of this year's VP excursions. Wish I remembered more of my VP experience. Sigh. And the new kids already have sales since their VP experience. Double sigh.

It seems like I keep linking to Chuck Wendig's 25 things about writing posts. It's probably because they're good ones.

Welcome to Jim’s traditional freak-out over the final draft of his book. Even the pros get the jitters. Good to know.

Sure, you've seen superconductors levitating over a magnetic field, but have you seen quantum trapping. Cool. You need to watch until you get to the rail tracks (magnetic circle) at about 2:30. And then they do it upside down. (Pointed to by John)

And since we're doing videos, what a trip at relativistic speeds would look like. (Grokked from Jay Lake)

The shit that sir says tumblr. Some quotes NSFW. Seriously people, you ask your phone for this? (Grokked from Dan)

The Donald Maass agency has a new agent. Begin the deluge of queries in 3… 2… 1…

Oh, wow. Rick Perry is exactly like GW Bush. He's now having his political appointees rewrite scientific reports to excise out any mention of climate change or it's effects. Do we really need to tell adults that ignoring the problem won't make it go away? (Grokked from Jay Lake)

The opposite of "Don't ever throw me in that briar patch." Wow, Karl Rove. Project much? (Grokked from Jay Lake)

Tweet of my heart:
@eportlow: We who are marching in demonstrations across the U.S. who don't keep marching to the voting booth have wasted all prior steps of that march.
