I Never Metadata
I Never Metadata
Mindy Carner
This is a show about the data that is used to classify, describe, manage and protect your data. A show about metadata. All those little elements that you use to make your content findable to your consumers, to its editors, for yourself! The title? Metadata. The file size? Metadata. But why does your data need to get so meta? How much is the right amount of metadata for your content? How can you leverage metadata not just to make content findable, but also to gain insights about consumer behavior and in turn to improve your content? These are just some of the questions and topics that we will cover in I Never Metadata. As technology continues to grow and evolve, I continue to find that I never metadata I didn’t like!
Episode 12 - Embedded Metadata with David Riecks
In this episode I invited David Riecks to discuss embedded photo metadata. He tells me about his experience in going from applying metadata to an accompanying database, to embedding it in the file itself, but then how ultimately, his philosophy is that, it is not whether to do one or the other, but to do both.

Semantics - Part 1
The semantic web is an unrealized vision for the World Wide Web cooked up by the web's creator Tim Berners-Lee. You may have begun to hear about it in the last ten years, but it has been part of the vision for even longer than that. The semantic web is the web that allows computers to process information with context without the need for human intervention. But it's hard to talk about semantic details without talking about some of the history of the web. That is what this episode is all about, the history of HTTP, HTML and its use of the internet to create the World Wide Web.
