    3) UI Design

Oh! I've got this.


1. "The Visual Display of Quantitative Information" - fucking fantastic book

2. Everyone says "Don't Make Me Think" but I didn't find much new/useful from this books. Most is covered by the basic UI blogs.

3. About Face: The Essentials of User Interface Design - just finished this one. The basics. Great.

I prefer blogs though.

Here's my list:

1. Nielsen Norman Group

2. Weekly newsletters about general design / ux - full of modern information that is 100% applicable to today

3. Pattern Tap - this is a reference of how other people do certain things like forms or top navigations etc.

4. The Hipper Element - mostly pulls exceptional stories from other blogs. Great. Also his UX Crash Course is so good.

5. Tuts+ - basically will teach you anything about anything. They recently broke their tutorials down into categories like design and code which is great. This is one of my favorite things in my RSS. One moment I'll be reading about Russia, the next I'll be knee deep in creating a knight in shiny armor with illustrator.
