Sites I found interesting and useful
 
  • Wikipedia - surely, no list can be complete without wikipedia. It's such a wonderful resource, especially for students.
  • Amateur Scientist - Bill Beaty does a wonderful job of explaining what electronics REALLY means
  • Datasheet catalog - For electronic engineers, datasheets are the bible, and this is site is the church. It has most datasheets listed, but if you can't find it here, try AllDataSheets
  • Lessons in electric circuits - An excellent series of courses on all fields of electrical and electronics engineering.
  • OpenCourseWare - MIT have releases all their lecture notes for public use at no cost at all. The material is excellent (though sometimes you feel they were prepared to be accompanied by a lecture - which they were ). I highly recommend giving it a try.
  • FreeTechBooks - Has lots of computer science books releases free by the authors. Don't decide the quality from the (absence of) cost. Some of the books I found were quite classic in their handling of the subject.
  • Calvin and Hobbes  - The famous cartoon on the net is a gentle reminder of the child within us -  who is very much like Calvin.
