The Next Big Thing: User-Contributed Metadata

Posted on November 5, 2007. Filed under: Blogroll |

is the title of a great post on the Minding the Planet blog about new developments that will have a significant impact on how we experience and use the web.
It will be exciting to follow sites such as Twine when fully rolled out and how they will take what we today loosely call user generated content to a whole new level by adding richer data elements and semantics.
I expect this to have an impact on travel as well and bring improvements to today’s user experience of travel sites. In light of the reported decrease in the number of online travelers a welcome and needed next step in the evolution of the market.
