This thread replaces the now rather ugly and old "Best Links" thread.
For those interested the old thread is still alive and can be found here;​ad.php?t=22081

Eric, Thanks for taking the time to go through this! Awesome job!

WOW...I am new to POTN and I am soooo grateful for this Thread. Incredible that you have taken the time to organize all this information so that newbies like myself can really begin the learning process without having to hunt through millions or sites.

I am sure I will pay this forward somehow, someday. Thanks for your hard work!

Hey guys, I was just browsing the New York Public Library for a school project and noticed they have some pretty cool videos recently put up. One of them highlights the history of photography from where it began to where it is today. I suggest taking a look if you are interested in this type of stuff!​ws/treasures/external link
