Resources

Sariel's excellent new book The Unofficial Lego Technic Builder's Guide is now available. I recommend it for anyone wishing to explore the Technic system; visit my blog to read my review of it.
 
HiTechnic Products, a superb range of sensors, lights, remote control devices and gadgets built by John Barnes for use with Lego and Mindstorms. Do not miss this, it is excellent stuff!
 
Lego Software Power Tools, written by Kevin Clague and Miguel Agullo, a comprehensive guide to Lego CAD tools. These software tools are complex and powerful but in my opinion lack coherent documentation, and this book fulfils the need beautifully.
 
Building Robots with Lego Mindstorms, book by Mario and Giulio Ferrari. It contains a good mixture of theory and practice is thoroughly recommended.

Organisations

Brick Suppliers

bulletBricklink consists of many individual shops and is the probably the most extensive source for extra pieces.
bulletDacta are an educational division of lego who supply many parts no longer available elsewhere such as the micromotor and caterpillar track links. UK distributor is the Commotion Distribution.
bulletLego Shop At Home sell a variety of individual and bulk pieces as well as the usual sets; the selection is fairly limited at this time, although prices are generally cheaper than elsewhere.


Reference

bulletTechnica by Jim Hughes, a superb registry of Technic parts with great pictures.
bulletBrickset is an excellent reference for Lego sets over the years, with a good keyword based search.
bulletPeeron contains over 1000 Lego set inventories and information on the parts themselves. You can search to find which sets contain a particular part. Extremely useful!
