HTML5 Boilerplate - A rock-solid default for HTML5 awesome.
"Boilerplate is not a framework, nor does it prescribe any philosophy of development, it's just got some tricks to get your project off the ground quickly and right-footed." Good documentation, lots of neat tricks in here, and some good jumping-off points for further research.

Skew, The Frontend Engineer's Misery @ Irrational Exuberance
"With limited influence, unlimited hands in the pie, a low barrier to critique, and the perception of triviality, frontend engineers are the janitors of software development. Rather than cleaning up trash, the boulder they toil beneath is skew: the distance between team member's conceptions of a project." This really feels very familiar: it's the most under-appreciated art in the stack of software development, and the one that takes the brunt of the crap.

Recreating the button | stopdesign
"The buttons are designed to look very similar to basic HTML input buttons. But they can handle multiple interactions with one basic design. The buttons we’re using are imageless, and they’re created entirely using HTML and CSS, plus some JavaScript to manage the behavior." Dark, dark voodoo, but very impressive - and excellently explained by Doug Bowman. It's nice to see Doug blogging again.

Slides: Professional Frontend Engineering | Nate Koechley's Blog
Awesome stuff. This, really, is one of my core backgrounds: not so much being an "HTML monkey" but performing genuine front-end engineering. It's such a shame so many places don't see it as a true skill.

Perfection / journal / nascentguruism
"If there’s a single piece of functionality that you feel you can’t provide in raw HTML, you’re doing it wrong." Yes. Steve is, by and large, right about all of this. This is why front-end development is worthy of being a role in its own right.
