I've heard a lot about Dubstep but I know absolutely nothing about it. Can anyone suggest some starting points with it for a totally newbie like myself?

^it's far from conventional dubstep (dubstep is primarily a dance music so there aren't tons of 'albums' to choose from per se) BUT everyone will recommend Burial's album 'Untrue', it's been a real crossover success and deservedly so. Should be easy to find on google blogsearch

edit: also Skream's album 'Skream!' (2006) is the first dubstep LP, it has 'Midnight Request Line' which kind of kicked the whole thing off and made people sit up and pay attention

I'd also recommend Milanese - Extend and Distance - My Demons as good crossover albums.

Maybe a Dubstep Allstars comp would be a good starter Janszoon.

I managed to find "Untrue" and was able to listen to some of it just now while I was out running some errands. It seems pretty good though very different from what I was expecting. For some reason I had the idea in my head that dubstep was more of a musical cousin to grime. It actually seems much closer to trip-hop though with—very surprisingly to me—a faint whiff of late 80s bands like Enigma.

I like it, especially the beats. I'm kind of a sucker for UK style dance beats though, they're always much more fractured and interesting than their American counterparts.

Just wanted to pop in with a little update on my dubstep listening. I'm really enjoying the Milanese and Burial albums—amazing atmospheric stuff. I'm finding the Dubstep Allstars comp a little harder to get into but mostly just because it's one giant hour-long track. It's like trying to sink my teeth into a gigantic club sandwich: I'm sure I'll enjoy it in the end but I'm struggling to get my teeth around it.

I've been having trouble finding some of the other suggestions.

Any idea on his new album release date? I really liked his S/T a lot.

Both Benga's and Kode 9's latest releases are getting more airplay from myself recently. The Benga album 'Diary Of An Afro Warrior' did nothing for me at first but once you get it, it becomes a much spun disc.
