Attention Profiling: APML Beginner's Guide

Michael Pick, Master New Media, Nov 14, 2007
Commentary by Stephen Downes

Personal attention metadata is "...consolidated, structured descriptions of people's interests and dislikes. The information about your interests and how much each means to you (ranking) is stored in a way so that computers and web-based services can easily read it, interpret it, process it and pass it on should you request and permit them to do so." It is what I have called "second party metadata", that is, metadata created by the user of a resource. As this article shows, we are now entering a period where this is becoming more important. Do take a look at this item; it is a comprehensive overview of the concept. See also dataportability.org.
