Book overview. This edited collection explores theoretical and practical questions about multimodal, digital production through lenses of rhetoric/composition, digital writing studies, English studies, and the humanities.
Abstract. This chapter argues for the relevance of metadata (especially folksonomies or descriptive metadata) to the future of new media composition, using a nonsequential design. Using the Library of Congress' pilot project with Flickr as a case study, we show the various ways that metadata can be interpreted as an ambivalent social practice, which both accommodates and resists formal standardization.
