These guys are trying to crowdfund a documentary film about the Mexican wolf. They need some serious help. (Disclaimer: I am not part of this project, but have contributed to it.)

+Kickstarter should automatically build a standardised Venn diagram of reward levels for every project.

I have a totally irrational love for this.

Even after a couple weeks, seeing the new Kickstarter green still makes me think my color correction is malfunctioning.

Interesting commentary from +Jordan Ellenberg, a classmate I didn't know. In particular: "Those of us who managed sky-high SAT scores at 13 were 20 times as likely as the average American to get a doctorate; let's say, being charitable, that we're 100 times as likely to make a significant scientific advance. Since we're only 1 in 10,000 of the U.S. population, that still leaves 99% of scientific advances to be made by all those other kids who didn't get an early ticket to the genius club."
Former child prodigies need less attention, not more—and we aren't going to solve all the world's problems, writes Jordan Ellenberg.

For some reason, I've always associated wolves with gamers. Maybe because wolves hold an iconic state in so many different kinds of RPGs. Maybe because my gaming group 15 years ago adopted a wolf pack. So, I'm hoping gamers can help out this film, which aims to document the "lobo" before there are none left to document.

"Precision Polyhedral Dice are dice that are CNC machined from solid metal alloys.  The precision of these dice comes from being CNC machined one by one. This process is far superior to molded plastic or molded metal dice and they look amazing as well."

When you use different e-mail addresses for different sites, the new trend of Kickstarter campaigns providing +DriveThruRPG coupons attached to your Kickstarter e-mail address is really $%@*ing irritating.

#cardboardgamingtable Reposts happen. No big. Try the veal.

And - yes - is very annoying. Steph doesn't have a DTRPG account, so her KS PDF rewards go to me.

We keep having to ask project creators to reissue to me.

I plan on learning Apple's new Swift programming language by rewriting #Omnihedron. If this effort is of interest, you can increase the chance of it actually happing by letting me know. No idea who still uses the thing.

Also: this is a decent place for feature requests. (Importing lists from Abulafia, for example).

"In this game, players take on the role of various bugs who gained intelligence from a house-wide event called The Awakening. They go on crazy adventures in various rooms (each with its own dangers) and battle for control over This House, the most disgusting and filthy domicile on the block. Every room, from Cabinet City to The Stinker to The Mange, is a treasure trove of garbage and filth and just waiting for your bugs to explore them. If you’re part of the ruling species you may get to take your pick of the treasure, otherwise you’ll need to use your instincts to take what you can." - +Eloy Lasanta

I've seen a lot of "well, I guess we're not going to make it" posts, but this is the first one I've seen that lays part of the blame on distributed denial of service attacks that started when the project went live. The sad part is that, in this case, it's probably true.

+Eric Franklin point, patents are always a tricky business, in any case there are other funders that arent corporate (usually govt, nasa or academic) If the project had legit salt (for irony) then this would be easy to scoop up by funders.
+Wayne's Books yes, thats a huge problem with aquatic-based projets in general
