Recent activity has flattened somewhat, raising issues regarding the public’s appetite for these projects. More importantly, the menus project raised hard questions about the quality of the crowd sourced content, the longevity of the data, and the disposition of the data (e.g. What is it? Is it good enough for our purposes? Should we keep it? If yes, where does it belong?).
This presentation will discuss these issues and propose some alternative views on metadata, user-generated content, and the intersection of the two.
