I follow people online who write in a variety of different languages, using a wide variety of platforms. One of the blogs I follow is the MSDN blog. This can be a great source of information of upcoming web standards, or even new platforms Microsoft is trying out.

Given the scientific depth that XKCD usually uses to make their comics, I tend to lean on the side of believing their interpretation of the data. Of course, I invite you to verify the data yourself.

Creating things in general is hard work, and takes a lot of dedication. Making things for the web can sometimes be downright cruel. The Oatmeal has done a fantastic job of summing up the creative outlet online.
