Metadata’s dead…

But the memories live on. Looks like the funeral industry in Japan has found a unique way to link to the deceased.

I talk about XMP metadata as a communication technology carried within the media but I never thought of it in terms of channeling my ancestors. Talk about embedded metadata, the QR codes are chiseled right into the tombstone.

Metadata seems to always add value to whatever it touches, even in creepy weird ways.
