Metacrap: "Putting the torch to seven straw-men of the meta-utopia."  Excellent rant y Cory Doctorow on why meta-data doesn't help much.  Jon Udell's comments on LinkedIn narrow user input, and the way that Google could derive better info than they ask for as metadata.  "I'm skeptical as to the benefit of a parochial reputation system such as LinkedIn, which requires extra effort to join, to feed with metadata, and to use. If we have (or are rapidly evolving) a global reputation system that can absorb and contextualize our routine communication, then parochial systems will need to deliver huge amounts of extra value.
