    1. Heather Staines1 month agoWould you consider metadata to be a form of annotation? Annotation for machines?Remi Kalir1 month agoYes, absolutely, metadata is a form of annotation. The MIT Press EKS volume “Metadata” is included in our Further Readings section. And the relationship between human-machine annotation, as well as automated annotation, is a topic we pick up in Chapter 7. Do you see additional opportunities for us to more explicitly discuss metadata as a form of annotation?

      It’s a great meta meta example, but the IndieWeb movement uses microformats to mark up portions of web pages with metadata that gives machines the idea of the semantics of a particular post. Thus, I could reply to this web page with a traditional social media “like” as a means of annotating it on my own website. The microformat “u-like-of” would be added to my page’s metadata that allows the web page I’m replying to to read that like intent and potentially display it—though traditionally they’re shown under the text in question.

    1. Two, deciding whether or not your image (and, by exten-sion—since many Instagrammers post images of themselves—your body) has worth. You can base this purely on how many likes it gets, but if you don’t see how many likes other images get, you can’t compare your number of likes to anyone else’s. You can only compete with yourself. As we’ll learn in Chapter 4 when we discuss contrast effect, we avoid making decisions in a vacuum, so if you show us other people’s likes, we’ll be tempted to use them to rate our own value. Removing likes is a step away from making a bad decision about what to compare your image to.

      I like the thinking here and where it could subtly push us to.
