Yet another great presentation from the SemTech 2009 conference this past June in San Jose. This presentation is onSemantics at the New York Times.
Here is aslide presentation that the New York Times delivered at a different conference, but it’s very similar to the one delivered at SemTech.
The (Long) History of Metadata at the New York Times
The presentation starts out exploring the history of metadata at the New York Times, from the beginnings of their Morgue archive which was created at the newspaper’s inception in, if you can believe, 1851. The so-called Morgue was not a collection of corpses (thank goodness), but rather a collection of newspaper clippings and photos.
