I got directed to Kevin Koch's blog by a coworker of mine today and its really cool reading for animators. A post that especially caught my eye was about how do you animate good animation really really fast, and the answer was kinda cool, coming from a guy that has been in the industry for a while....you can't! :)
There are things one can do though, to get good stuff done in a decent amount of time. Check out the post and bookmark Kevin Koch's blog SynchroLux.
Thanks for the link, Rob.
