Round up: Saturday 19th December 2009
There was a lot going on last week so here's an extra helping of interesting links you may have missed:
The Audience Experience research section has been thinking about different types and sources of metadata and why some might be more useful than others...
....Metadata can tell you what your content is. Metadata can tell you what the ingredients of your content are. If we drill down to a single unit of content - let's say a song - it can tell you what that is made of too. All of this seems irrelevant until you consider the problems that it can solve- the thousands of hours of digital content, and the person searching for that specific clip.
Surely, that's a bit like asking the Vatican to provide the commentary on the Reformation?
