Oh, Happy Day!
Today I got my copy of this: Book: A Futurist’s Manifesto. What a great project this was – I absolutely loved being included in it. And it really IS a manifesto, which I love even more – those of us battling the same-old-same-old NEED a manifesto.
Another thing that makes me happy is the workshop that Brian O’Leary and I are giving in Frankfurt. Yes, it’s about metadata – it’s a deep dive into what works and what doesn’t, how to refine even the best practices to describe books more effectively, and…(my favorite) what’s next. Semantic web! Identifiers! Linked data! XML! Context and containers! The space between things! Nodes! Relationships! How the web works!
Brian has a great description on his blog about it. I think it’s going to be pretty groundbreaking. Kinda…futurist.
