Metadata Primers: Understanding Mysteries, Magic and Pitfalls.
Jim Calloway at his Law Practice Tips Blog has an instructive and important post and Carolyn Elefant at My Shingle has an equally thoughtful post on metadata. These are both an alert and a call to arms of sorts. And Jim and Carolyn are not alone. Jim's in particular collects some great materials. I'm still learning--but it's clear already that understanding and managing "data about data" is important--and important right now--if: (1) you have clients, (2) you work on-line at all, (3) you care about ethics and/or (4) (especially) you do litigation for a living. In other words, most of us.
