Direction on content

Recently I had a chat with a social media expert, trying to get some advice about how to build my “social chops”, and she quite rightly pointed out the amount of work I need to do.

In retrospect, reading past posts, it looks like I might know a little about social. I don’t. I’m learning. I think we all are. It’s moving so fast that it’s hard to keep up.
So, I’m going to go back to the foundations and strip the building back to it’s bones. Social, mobile, web, whatever you want to focus on- it’s all about content.
A few years back, I started a new job, and tried to share my enthusiasm about content with a list of inspirational sites. Weirdly enough, two years later they are still as relevant now as they were then.

Here we go:

Content usability and design:
Jacob Nielson
Steve Krug

Standards
Differences between HTML 4 and 5
Meeting WCAG 2

Pioneers that haven’t lost their way (excluding the aforementioned gurus!)

 Jesse James Garrett
Gerry McGovern

Who else can I add to this list?
