The Truth About Metadata

In a a recent posting Ben Hammersley comments about truth in metadata: "The answer to the problem of false metadata is, in fact, more metadata. For the problem of false metadata is actually a subset of the much wider problem of false information in general. Although the semantic web's need for metadata allows for more things to be false, metadata is also the only way to denote the data as false once you know it to be so."

I replied with some comments (from the OWL specification), I still hope that everyone becomes a librarian.
