Got to keep up with the web. Here is a collection of pages I've bookmarked.
This is a stunning collection of info-graphics. Not only are the graphics themselves excellent and provide tones of inspiration, but there are loads of them!
Working with clients
Anthony Dines suggests that you fall in love with your client. Some solid advice here - read this article and take it onboard.
Accelerated 3D for the web
The Khronos group (authors of the OpenL specification) have announced a partnership with Mozilla to work on brining OpenGL ES to a Canvas 3D context. Nice.

Jeffrey Zeldman presents information about the validation statistics of the top 100 Alexa site. 7 validate, others a close. Not a great showing - but it is getting better.
What is good design?
Dieter Rams presents his ten commandments of good design. Print this article out and pin it on the wall!
When can I use...
This site documents various browser features, detailing which browsers they appear in, what bugs there might be and presents demos (depressing many "Not ready" statements...). Absolutely brilliant - good documentation is key to the open web.
This is absolutely wonderful - creating pictures out of coloured crayons. You get the colour effect and true depth - awesome.
No to spec work
You are invited to do 10 months of free work in the hope that your entry will be selected to power the UI for an open source router - oh and you need to buy the device as well.
