Integrated metadata

As you may, or may not, have noticed, I’ve been integrating various pieces of metadata into the site, primarily into each individual post. Eventually I’ll remove the ‘meta’ option for each page, and just provide a machine consumable RDF/XML option — the humanly readable components will show directly.

Right now I’m creating a plugin in that pulls the links within a post and adds these into the metadata as references associated with the post. I’ve also added a form that allows me to add references that aren’t linked in the post (and which are printed out at the end of the post).

I’m playing around with tags and other odds and ends, but I wish I could find the right combination of data and implementation to really effectively demonstrate how all this holds together.


The i86 applesauce

How do you make i86 Applesauce? You take an Apple, carve out the PowerPC core, replacing it with Intel sugar and a hint of cinnamon and nutmeg. Then you hold a press conference, throw the Apple to the developers, buyers, and vendors, and let their agitation smash it all to hell.

What’s left is a tasty, albeit lumpy, confection.

Serve in a futurist, white china dish, with plenty of bubbly on the side. Invite Dell and Gateway over, ask if they’d like a taste.
