      are these the splash pages? What are these PURL pages?

    1. Every time your child opens the email, that person knows generally where they are (or specifically, if they have other info to triangulate against).

    1. What are the risks in digitizing these materials outside the library? Are there possibilities of this collection not being well integrated with other holdings? Did you collaborate with metadata experts?

    1. Written while Owens was a digital archivist at the Library of Congress, this tutorial introduces the idea of glitching—intentionally corrupting a digital artifact—as a kind of playful deformance. Such intrusive digital interventions can serve a forensics purpose by exposing underlying metadata, but they can also defamiliarize the digital media in question. Owens walks through the glitching of music and image files. This process could be easily expanded to include other media types, including audiobooks, PDFs, and EPUBs, all very much of interest in a literature classroom.

      definitely deformative

    1. Our results demonstrate the promise of spatio-temporalfiltering techniques for“tuning”measurement of hazard-related rumoring to enableobservation of rumoring at scales that have long been infeasible.

      Result: Claims spatio-temporal filtering technique to better capture signal from noise of large crisis data sets.

    2. Rumoring about disaster events is typically temporally and spatiallyconstrained to places where that event is salient. Accordingly, we use spatio and temporalsubsampling to increase the resolution of our detection techniques. Byfiltering out datafrom known sources of error (per rumor theories), we greatly enhance the signal ofdisaster-related rumoring activity. We use these spatio-temporalfiltering techniques todetect rumoring during a variety of disaster events, from high-casualty events in majorpopulation centers to minimally destructive events in remote areas.

      Method: Used spatio and temporal subsampling. How is that defined? Is the sample constrained to users' that geolocate tweets?

    3. Measuring features of informal communicationetiming, content, locationewith any degree of precision has historically been extremelychallenging in small studies and infeasible at large scales

      Acknowledges the difficulty of collecting sensemaking attributes, like temporality, in informal user-generated content during a disaster.

      Note: claims collection of precise spatial and temporal metadata. How is that defined?

    1. he odd result of this is that we have trending topics in networks like Twitter and Facebook, where the vast majority of updates are short and trivial, but we don’t have easily-explorable tags, hashtags or trending topics for articles and stories that are longer and more substantive.

      Another critical point.

    2. It’s striking that we likely have author information provided as metadata on the majority of articles published today, but almost none of our reading tools expose this information in useful ways, or let us search or explore using the metadata.

      This is a really really important point.

    1. process of annotation respects and renders visible the experiences of those people whose lives have been documented by state organizations and thus can build trust with Indigenous peoples.

      Existing collections such as North American Indian Thought and Culture could greatly benefit from this sort of retroactive description. For collections that are already owned, coordinated efforts by those with purchasing/institutional power would be needed. Also conversations "on the trade show floor" with companies such as Gale and Adam Matthews would be beneficial.

      Example: the work of Edward S. Curtis / and the digital repatriation model (referenced on p. 33)

    1. Hypothesis now uses DOIs to join variants of the same document in the same way it uses PDF fingerprints. Both pieces of metadata — the DOI, and the PDF URL — are typically included in HTML metadata.

      This is really cool! Thanks for the great explanation!

    1. Many have argued that minimalist metadata (such as DC Core), is not only easier to create than IMS/IEEE descriptions, but also more cost-effective. One question the iLumina project is addressing is whether this is true.

      I only think it's true if you don't think too hard about the Dublin Core definitions.

    1. Can you avoid metadata? No, not at all. Sorry, not at all, anymore. I think you can even generate more metadata from existing data. Just think about living near a sightseeing building or something like that, how many tourists took holiday pictures and published them on Facebook. How many of these pictures contains your face? Then, one day, somebody will create a facial recognition algorithm and gather even more metadata about you.

    1. I have used the bibliographies to conduct my own research in the area of cataloging assessment, and the social justice bibliography has helped me with a project I’m working on to examine video classification practices.

      A lot of my research involves digital library/digital repository assessment, and the assessment literature in that area also relies heavily on quantitative measurements of assessment. I'm very interested in seeing the cataloging + social justice bibliography and if it can help my digital library assessment research.

    2. I began to wonder if by merely assessing the mechanistic aspects of cataloging work we were missing out on an opportunity to include broader social concepts in our assessment and planning processes

      yes, this! I'm really interested in this

    1. mEDRA has been created as a solution for the need of the publishing industry to be supported in the technological innovation process by professionals with a deep understanding of the specific requirements and dynamics of the sector, that could provide specialised technological solutions and expertise.

      mEDRA brings toghther publishing and tecnology experise. This is an effective approach to digital disruption.

    1. In addition, the results imply that there is a lack of awareness about the importance of metadata among the scientific community –at least in practice– which is a serious problem as their involvement is quite crucial in dealing with problems regarding data management.

      Is there any reasonable agreement about what the term metadata means or includes? For example, how important is the unit of measure to scientists (feet vs meters) and is that information considered metadata or simply an implied part inherent in the data itself?

    2. Adding descriptive metadata to datasets helps makes the dataset more accessible by others and into the future. Respondents were asked to indicate all metadata standards they currently use to describe their data. More than half of the respondents (56%) reported that they did not use any metadata standard and about 22% of respondents indicated they used their own lab metadata standard. This could be interpreted that over 78% of survey respondents either use no metadata or a local home grown metadata approach.

      Not surprising that roughly 80% use no or ad hoc metadata.
