      Donna,
       
      Very true. People now know the word "metadata" but I wonder how deep that understanding goes? Do they know that metadata is everywhere? Does it make them more likely to pay attention to it?
       
      Cheers,
       
      Matt

      Hi Matt,
      Well, first and foremost, I would say that since Edward Snowden's actions - metadata is now almost a household word. Certainly, people that pay close attention to the news know it.

      Hello,

      I find myself scheduled to give a talk to a group of library degree students on information organisation that I last gave a year ago. I am reviewing what I did last year and I am tempted to throw the whole lot out. I am also conscious that a recent job change has reduced my exposure to this stuff.

      So I thought I would ask this group. What's changed in the world of information management & taxonomies in the last 12 months (both for you personally and the world in general) and what hasn't?

      Regards,

      Matt
