Wandering over to Content Strategy, Val Swisher (contentrules.com) posts commentary on the ten rules of global content strategy, and Mark Sherbin (contentmarketinginstitute.com) explains why content should be curated. Nate Riggs offers another opinion on why content strategy matters (seems not everyone is convinced yet), Christopher Butler talks about the content bubble and respect, and we get some advice on revitalizing content.. In User Experience, TechRepublic talks about unsolicited redesign, Smashing Magazine posits that WordPress has lost its usability mojo, and UXMovement explores another avenue–service design.
We wrap with Career and Life, where we have tips on finding the best LinkedIn groups, thoughts on grammar and texting, and a tweet on Topic-Based Authoring.
