Physical Computing Bookmarks

Do you keep losing your physical computing bookmarks ? Well, for some reason, I do. I lost them when I reinstalled my OS. I lost them when I switched browser. I’m so hopeless that I’ve decided to write this blog post in the hope to put an end to this awful sequence.

Worst case scenario they will at least be cached by Google…

So here it goes : my constantly expanding list of physical computing (and related) bookmarks and favorites. This list is in no particular order. If you notice broken links, please let me know.
