Primarily, I've been more of a print designer, and am finding myself diving into learning more and more about what makes web design so different. I like the fact that print is so tangible. You can hold the finished product in your hand, and don't need an internet connection to be able to experience it. Print can be a physical experience with large format banners and posters, or trade show booth designs. It's a physical thing in the end.
Web design can also be an experience. Depending on your technological involvement, your experience can be dramatically different, and that's one of the great things about web design. It's a little different for everyone. The constant updates to browsers and languages, and the constant flood of new, innovative technology means a constantly evolving environment to present information on the web.
Adapt or die. Technology will weed out weakly presented information, and if you're not dynamic enough to keep up, you will be forgotten and be less effective as a web resource.
Netmagazine.com has put together a great list of resources for dynamic web design that all designers should take a better look at.
