Tips on selecting icons for web applications?

Hi there,

I'm looking for any resources or tips on selecting good icons for functions unique to a certain web application. I personally don't design icons myself, and think I could be successful using those already out there for purchase.

If anyone could give insight on a couple of things, that'd be great, too:

1) Should icons on a toolbar always be labeled, or will a user be able to learn them after using the application regularly?

Universal Principles of Design


I don't think I remember seeing any posts/threads on this book, and it
amazes me. I finally made it to the last page a couple of days ago,
and even though I was already familiar with a large chunk of the
concepts discussed in it, I am in awe of how gracefully and succinctly
the authors presented each one.

The book covers 100 principles that apply across various desgn
disciplines. Every principle is presented in a 2-page spread.

Interesting blurb on Adobe/Macromedia merger...

Get out our toolset migration plans....GoLive going away?

The proposed merger of Adobe and Macromedia has stirred some anxiety in the developer community, which a new report says is justified.

While Adobe is keeping mum on the fate of individual software titles, saying a product roadmap won't be drawn until (unless) the acquisition closes, one industry analyst published some prognostications on which product teams at both companies should be polishing their resumes, and what applications developers should consider learning to live without.

Using qualifying questions to create a semi-walled garden?

Working on a marketing site for a consumer electronics service.

Some customers can get product A; some can get product B; some can get
both (due to geographic and technical limitations).

There is no clear-cut single qualifying question, but probably 95%
accuracy by postal code (zip code).

Marketing is pushing for a qualifying question up front that will
determine which product you are shown (i.e, you will not be shown the
other product).

We are pushing for an open site that will promote both products, and
give the users the ability to choose, and do qualifying as the first
