    No more monkey bites

    It's kind of sad, really. I spent countless hours on Webmonkey during the late 90s. It taught me more about web development than any other resource out there. Now it's closing its doors after 8 successful years. Well, more like 6 successful years. You could tell it was beginning to slip a couple years ago when they stopped riding the wave of the newest breakthroughs, like web standards.

    The content, at one time, was like gold. The tutorials were written so well that anyone could teach themselves HTML, even if they'd never seen a computer before. Most of all, I'll miss the daily Monkey Bites that graced their homepage. The Monkey Bite was a blog, before blogs existed, providing links to interesting web development news and entertaining sites. *eek* *eek* The Monkey's dead.
