make metadata

getting the hang of harnessing and wielding the various forms of metadata out there in the business world. the data about data and the relationships between the data and the data about data is key to revealing interesting content in relevant and relational way. there is metadata about the type of content, who made it, when it was made, what it is, and where it should show up. the semantic stuff is still a bit nebulous to me, and getting the servers and software to return the right stuff at the right time from various parts of the company (products and reviews and articles and price comparisons)
its complex but will become all the more clear with a shot of old grandad and a couple tokes on the old crystalmeth. just kidding. i dont care for such stimulants. i am on half caf and even know how to seal a bag of freshly roasted coffee beans. grab the top and pinch it all the way down to the top of the beans to get all the air out then get to rolling it and rolling it and when it meets the beans use the little foldy bender to keep it closed by tucking them under the little awnings on the side of the bag itself. its ingeniously anal.
there is a lot of hoopla surrounding the anniversary of the 1906 earthquake. articles are being reprinted in the papers, one such stating that the military had the full go ahead to shoot any looters. there was also a real estate boom after the disaster cooled off. there are little fake camps in the presidio like the ones where refugees had to hang. the tents were much smaller and certainly more pointy back in those days we used to wear an onion on our belts, see, because that was the style in the time. anyway, the big question is when is the next one? trust a licensed psychic to tell you.
