    3) UI Design

Oh! I've got this.

Books:

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.

6. ia blog

7. UX Apprentice

here's the full list. 1 2 3

Here's another good thread from Quora: http://www.quora.com/Which-books-can-help-me-become-well-versed-in-UI-UX-and-usability-standards

Links all appreciated. Tangential complaint, hubski notifications on comments have stopped working for me. I had to manually go into this thread to see that there were replies (Happened the other day, too).

Turned off email, but now it's suddenly working, got hub wheel notification for this entire thread between that post and now.

Interesting. Maybe it was just hungover from a long night and is playing catchup now. :P
