One New Thing: Metadata musings.

Looks like this document has been around for a few years, but is still very relevant: Metacrap: Putting the torch to seven straw-men of the meta-utopia by Cory Doctorow. It’s seven basic reasons why metadata is never going to work. My personal opinion is that it metadata would be the answer to cataloguing the internet only when everyone publishing information online becomes a librarian. Check out the article: it’s also an amusing read so it can be the Friday…um, end-of-week link. :)
