Very impressive list! I found a couple of tools that I think might be useful to me, but honestly I didn't check all of them. This is too long of a list for one post and I think each category deserves its own post. Not a bad idea to have all resources on one page, but I just hate to scroll that much!

Tim Berners-Lee was thinking about people like you when he created the web. It's simply staggering, the number of resources available out there, overwhelming at times, but it's people like you who just make the 'I didn't know what I didn't know' knowns. a lot more accessible. Thank you.
