Join us as we celebrate the release of “Design for Real Life” with co-authors Sara Wachter-Boettcher and Eric Meyer. Enjoy book giveaways and free snacks by Frankford Hall. Sara and Eric will be there to speak about the book and do some signings!
People find metadata inscrutable, even intimidating. Maybe they think it’s just something to do with SEO. Or, thanks to some high-profile security violations, they think metadata is trying to rob them of their privacy. I prefer the view proposed by archivist/historian Jason Scott: “Metadata is a love note to the future.” Data we’re generating is not inherently good or bad, but gains value (or poses risk) depending on how we use it. We may not understand the meaning of all this data we’ve created, but eventually people will develop ways to make sense of it, find unforeseen connections, and create new knowledge.
