Fill your head with ideas. The Interent is full of great resources.
Learn stuff. Break things.
That being said... it's un-cool to steal things,
and don't cram slick graphics and tech snippets down end-users' throats.
Research, wire-frames, flow-charts, task analysis, sitemaps, personas, more...
Grids, software, tips, color schemes, etc.
Structural elements, html methodologies and best practices. CSS fun.
Emotional hooplah. Snazzy layouts. Nifty designs.
Share. It's the way to be and it's the spirit of the internet. It's a way of life.
