I've been programming for a long time- for over 25 years- and I've earned a good part of my income from doing geek-like things, but I feel like the world is passing me by, and I feel older and stupider more and more each day.
I can't figure out why it seems so difficult to make the conceptual leap, and I really need to get something going, so, to get the ball rolling, hive mind-
What are the best resources for learning this stuff that you know - either on line or via dead-trees? I've browsed the books at the local Fry's, but the place is awash with "Programming the Web for Dummies". et al. There are a million websites, but many of them seem to be clones, and none of them seem to be that good at anything more than individual narrow areas, and seem to aim at someone who has some critical knowledge that I lack.
