Vitaly Friedman, the renowned Germany web jock from Saarbruecken (and exponant of simple, accessible and user/SEO-friendly web design), has the best darn blog article I've seen in a long time on his site today.
If you work in web, or have an interest in developing new media, this is Jehovah sent.
While I'm giving him a plug, take a butchers at his 'Essential Bookmarks for Web-Designers & Web-Developers' project as well.
Hero. Gentleman. Scholar.
