Interesting fact: eGMS – so much for thegovernment’s “mandatory” metadata requirement; 73% of central and 42% of localgovernment websites fail the requirements on every single page, includingimportant sites such as direct.gov.uk, the Cabinet Office, and Number 10.Indeed, the “e-GIF Accreditation Authority” site itself makes no attempt at allto comply!

Have long thought that the IPSV (Integrated Public Sector Vocabulary) is becoming meaningless – seems many local authority web sites are ignoring it – or at least only ‘pretending’ to comply by allocating one term (e.g. ‘Local Gov’) from the list to their subject tag for web pages I mean, why bother when search engines can provide more accurate subject context from analysing all the content from the page?! Still, more on this topic later…it’s primary source of irritant for me!

I’m a life-long learner with an insatiable curiosity about life. I love travel, good food, and good company. I’m happy to share what I know with others….even the interesting stuff! My outlook on life is pretty well captured in this quote from a book about the legend of King Arthur: “The best thing for being sad,” replied Merlin, beginning to puff and blow, “is to learn something. That’s the only thing that never fails. You may grow old and trembling in your anatomies, you may lie awake at night listening to the disorder of your veins, you may miss your only love, you may see the world about you devastated by evil lunatics, or know your honour trampled in the sewers of baser minds. There is only one thing for it then — to learn. Learn why the world wags and what wags it. That is the only thing which the mind can never exhaust, never alienate, never be tortured by, never fear or distrust, and never dream of regretting. Learning is the only thing for you. Look what a lot of things there are to learn.” ― T.H. White, The Once and Future King So much to learn, so little time!
