Reading List

Today's reading list:

  • On the Quality of Metadata... by Stefano Mazzocchi. Read this, then read it again. The lesson I mainly got from this is, as expected, W3C XML schema does not modularise or compose, don't use it to describe metadata on the web. Ever. There's more in there too - engaging feedback on metadata so it can improve.
  • A nice writeup on the launch of the GPL v3 process from Simon Phipps including the background on the changes in this first draft. I also found the gplv3 draft 1 HTML awful to read, but inside it there's a nice plain text blob that I could wdiff against the GPL v2.1 to see what's new. (via Tim Bray)
