I think we can agree that Santa would use sound data management practices, including the creation and use of proper metadata, to keep track of his gift giving and logistical data. He would want the rest of us to use good metadata so we can always locate that 30 year old picture of him, too.Gary Price of InfoDocket brought this to my attention.
Be like Santa and make sure your data is findable and re-useable: use good metadata!
