Scott Wilson helps us all understand SPAWS (Sharing Paradata Across Widget Stores) with a new use case. "Paradata – reviews by users, ratings and 'likes', and aggregate download statistics – is collected separately by each store. Sharing this paradata between stores will add value for users of all the stores." Basically, then, it's like sharing metadata created by users (or as I called it, second party metadata) - except that the metadata is shared (as I could see from the paradata cookbook) in JSON rather than XML. meanwhile, related to another educational metadata initiative (LRMI), Phil Barker asksthe all-importnat question: Will using metadata improve my Google rank?
