Pomerantz explains what metadata is, and why it exists. He distinguishes among different types of metadata -- descriptive, administrative, structural, preservation, and use -- and examines different users and uses of each type. He discusses the technologies that make modern metadata possible, and he speculates about metadata's future. By the end of the book, readers will see metadata everywhere. Because, Pomerantz warns us, it's metadata's world, and we are just living in it.

This is a nifty little book, nicely written and very informative. My only criticism is the author repeats a Fake News Item [at least, he mentions it without disputing it, if I understood him correctly], namely, that everyone is connected to everyone else on the planet within one to six degrees. Utterly aburd! Why any academics keep repeating this nonsense, originally stated by some Fake Newsy, used to reporting Fake News, who either misread or couldn't understand the research results of Dr. Stanley Milgram, buggers belief! [Several innovative DJs created that Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon game, but that was entertainment, after all!]
Otherwise, an interesting book on metadata. [Happened to read it the same time I am reading We Are Data, by Cheney-Lippold - - nice synergy reading these two books together!]
