The Application of Weblike Design to Data: Designing Data for Reuse: “Every episode uniquely identifiable and addressable, forever!”
Simple yet long term useful metadata is the best metadata. I am often surprised by how ambitious some people are when trying to do enterprise-wide metadata: “We’ll collect dozens of fields of metadata for each piece of content!” Yeah right. The BBC didn’t make that mistake: simplicity first, yet great ambition at the same time. Brilliant.
