Gordon Gould writes,a proliferation of meta-data (tags, links, logs, etc) - theoretically can help us search more effectively. All forms of meta-data also, in many ways, compound the problem by creating exponentially more data about the original data. Also, these programmatic forms of meta-data are subject to automated corruption and spam.To help keep our metadata clean so we can find the original data we want, the Net has now turned to a new frontier in search: personal trust networks and using people we know/trust to help us search. The concept of "personal trust networks" is going to need to radically expand in order to make social search really work on a widespread basis. Personal networks are too determined by chance and proximity to cover everything effectively. As Chris Anderson observed, the overall network is sub-optimally fragmented both for any one user and the network in toto.
