    besides the internet? . . . hmmm

    I have a book on Information Architecture on the way, but other than that . . . dunno. Books on web design get outdated fast.

    they were all highly recommended to me. I'm halfway through FDR's Folly and it is AWESOME.

    I'd recommend FDR's Folly first. It's more important right now.
