comment What are the canonical NoSQL resources for people who never used this technology?
Great answer. I like the variety of the sources!
comment What's better for large changes to a table: DELETE and INSERT every time or UPDATE existing?

@Xkeeper : TEXT requires much more disk space I think, and I'm not sure you'll need more that 255 bits for your use. This is not an overkill, it provides you with enough flexibility to enhance your system later if need. It is a good pattern for scalability and proved useful for me.
