More Thoughts on Metadata and the Second Screen

More Thoughts on Metadata and the Second Screen | Digital Assets Rising, DAM to the Rescue! | Scoop.it

What kind of metadata is needed to drive a good UX (User eXperience)? What kind of metadata is required to support better advertising or commerce? Who provides this kind of metadata? What are the examples where this is done well in the marketplace today? How much metadata should the content creator or app developer try to capture?

 

Let's back up a bit and "normalize" all of our experience in this space.
I like to think of metadata in the video space falling into 3 categories: technical (frame rate, frame size, commercial break, bit rate, etc), descriptive (summary, actors, director, reviews) and contextual (what objects are in the scene, what is happening at that point). Clearly, the first is a requirement to deliver a quality video service no matter the channel of delivery, the second is critical to search and recommendation, and the third is critical for any higher value experiences (better commerce, contextual advertising, discovery of new content for a consumer).

The Ultimate Measure of Marketing Success

The Ultimate Measure of Marketing Success | Digital Assets Rising, DAM to the Rescue! | Scoop.it
For most businesses the primary measures of marketing success are more sales, more profits and greater brand recognition.

 

That seems like a pretty obvious, logical and healthy way to view marketing doesn’t it?

What if, however, the real goal was to build trust? What if marketing decisions were made with the best interest of the customer community first? What if the ultimate measure of marketing was a committed customer?

Three challenges for modern marketers and how to turn them into opportunities.

 

Traditionally, a marketer’s primary concern was having the right message, delivered through the right media, to the right people, and at the right time. There were fewer channels and less content, and that made the management and distribution of messages a much more manageable process.

Curators Create The Metadata Needed To Enable Our Emerging Collective Intelligence

Curators Create The Metadata Needed To Enable Our Emerging Collective Intelligence | Digital Assets Rising, DAM to the Rescue! | Scoop.it

Robin Good: Participatory culture writer and book author Henry Jenkins interviews cyberculture pioneer Howard Rheingold (Net Smart, 2012) by asking him to explain some of the concepts that have helped him become a paladin of the  and "new literacies" so essential for survival in the always-on information-world we live in today.

 

This is part three of a long and in-depth interview (Part 2, Part 1) covering key concepts and ideas as the value of "community" and "networks", the architecture of participation, affinity working spaces, and curation.

Here is a short excerpt of Howard response to a question about curation and its value as both a “fundamental building block” of networked communities and as an important form of participation:

 

Howard Rheingold: "...at the fundamental level, curation depends on individuals making mindful and informed decisions in a publicly detectable way.

 

Certainly just clicking on a link, “liking” or “plussing” an item online, adding a tag to a photograph is a lightweight element that can be aggregated in valuable ways (ask Facebook).

 

But the kind of curation that is already mining the mountains of Internet ore for useful and trustworthy nuggets of knowledge, and the kind that will come in the future, has a strong literacy element.

 

Curators don’t just add good-looking resources to lists, or add their vote through a link or like, they summarize and contextualize in their own words, explicitly explain why the resource is worthy of attention, choose relevant excerpts, tag thoughtfully, group resources and clearly describe the grouping criteria."

 

In other words, "curators" are the ones creating the metadata needed to empower our emerging collective intelligence.

 

Curation Is The Social Choice About What Is Worth Paying Attention To.

 

Good stuff. In-depth. Insightful. 8/10

You're welcome :)

It's interesting interesting that you mention POV and stance, as that is not something I had explicitly articulated for myself, but naturally it must be implicitly true. In that sense, it reminds me (again) that curation forces self-reflection in order to present the content better, and that can only be a good thing.
Liz Renshaw's comment, September 8, 2012 9:57 PM
Agree with posts about curation guiding self reflection. This interview in particular is top value and two of my fav people indeed.

There are a number of myths or misconceptions that surround the practice of embedding information such as IPTC, IPTC-IIM, XMP or even Exif into a digital image file - like JPEGs, TIFFs, Photoshop, DNG and other Raw files). There are a number of applications or utilities which can do this easily and safely, but first, let's take a look at the list.

Zend (previous CloudAve coverage), the company behind the popular PHP web application development framework, today announced the release of their PHP PaaS offering called PHPCloud.com, emphasizing on increased developer productivity. It is a clever packaging with strong ties between Zend Studio, Zend Framework and the elastic nature of cloud. As we see PaaS to be the mainstay in the future of cloud services and with enterprises starting to embrace PaaS, it makes complete sense for Zend to jump into the PaaS bandwagon, after all they are the gatekeeper of enterprise grade PHP apps.

Everybody hates doing documentation. Anyone who claims to enjoy doing should be on some kind of watch list. Robin East (@insidedctm) asked the question on twitter today
project documentation: “documents” on their own are totally inadequate. Wikis are barely better. Anyone tried something else?
The most effective documentation experience I ever had was the first where, as an afterthought, we incorporated video.

This is how people really learn a "process".  It is also relatively the simplest to produce and distribute.
