This is in equal parts a public and personal repository for useful links, literature and tools to enable an easy entry into topics and a deep dive into it. These bits and pieces were shared with me, made me understand aspects better, inspired my work or opened new ways of technological exploration. I hope it offers some for you as well.

Let me know if you think there is something missing.
