We all know (thanks, if nothing else, to the NSA), that metadata is all around us, hard at work behind the scenes making data and content more valuable, accessible, useful. In fact, the term has made it so far into the popular lexicon and consciousness that it is now used in news stories unaccompanied by a definition. And it’s proliferation has been accompanied by a sense of urgency. Folks keep talking about metadata’s tremendous importance: It’s “the new black,” even “the new data”!
In this Dojo session, we’ll establish a shared definition and understanding of what metadata is and then consider specifically what’s in it for “us.” How is metadata being used in the technical content arena, and how is this impacting our career paths and opportunities? What do we need to know?
