There was a lot going on last week so here's an extra helping of interesting links you may have missed:

On the BBC Research and Development blog Alia Sheikh introduces us to "Collaberative Archive Navigation".

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.

Earlier in the week Douglas Carswell MP was critical of the BBC's Digital Revolution project on his blog:

Surely, that's a bit like asking the Vatican to provide the commentary on the Reformation?

Jason Da Ponte of the BBC's mobile team shares his recent presentation at XLab in Sydney on his personal blog: "Mobile Connecting the Unconnected World".

James Cridland ex BBC has archived his list of BBC staff with blogs. James has kindly set up an OPML file if you still need the list. Thanks for the list in the first place James, and my best wishes.

And finally Head of BBC HD Danielle Nagler was interviewed on Radio 4's You and Yours last week (still available on BBC iPlayer).

Nick Reynolds is Social Media Executive, BBC Online
