New to SEO, old to SEO, want a clear cut refresher on the basics? A Cre8asite Thread links to a SEO 101 - At The Whiteboard by ZDNet. It is a very good basic video that you can send to your client's if you do not want to do the basic education yourself. I'm going to try it and see if any of my client's understand it, because there is a lot packed into the 5 minute video.
I believe Laura goes to the SES conferences, she has links up on that video page to HighRankings, Search Engine Watch and SEOMoz.
