    Geoff Nunberg on “metadata”:

    It’s the data you find on a card in a library catalog, or the creation date and size of a file in a folder window. It’s the penciled note on the back of a snapshot: “Kathleen and Ashley, Lake Charles, 1963.” Or it could be the times, numbers and GPS locations attached to the calls in a phone log.
