slef: I don't think that we'd have to have a regress of metametadata......if the metadata format were standardized, and there were a query language built on top of it, there would be no need for additional description. I guess though, that a schema for the metadata itself is in a way metametadata, but it should all work out nicely. ;-)

Last night I got fed up with XMMS and how it displayed track information in a tasklist, so I changed it from being "XMMS - tracknum. track (time)" to being "track (time) - tracknum - XMMS", which lets you get a good deal more information at a quick glance. I sent a patch the the xmms people....hopefully it is incorporated.

The thought of extending metadata to services is cool. It has a lot of potential.

Quote of the day:
"The mind of man is capable of anything - because everything is in it, all the past as well as all the future. What was there after all? Joy, fear, sorrow, devotion, valour, rage - who can tell? - but truth - truth stripped of its cloak of time. Let the fool gape and shudder - the man knows, and can look on without a wink."
--Joseph Conrad, Heart of Darkness
