Default Level Design Resources

I have been reading quite a bit on general game design recently and am wondering if anyone knows of some good level design resources? (i.e. websites, books, and so on) I would greatly appreciate it since I have been working hard on some source SDK maps.

I don't know about books but there is a ton of free online stuff at www.worldofleveldesign.com. In particular for Hammer.

What kinds of resources are you looking for specifically? Articles on how to design good levels? Articles about AI? Articles at all?

Or are you looking for programs and techniques and things like that?

Ya what I am really looking for is how to design good levels. Other then that I guess the only thing I could do is make sure I know what makes the game fun in the first place and build on that in my levels.

That's exactly what the book I linked you is about.
