The Analog-ists Revenge: How analog thinking can impact DAM

Leala Abbott – The Analog-ists Revenge: How analog thinking can impact DAM:

"Digital Asset Managers understand that every digital asset we choose comes with a cost (resources it will take to manage, upkeep, file formats, migrations etc), therefore we are extremely judicious with both what we keep (the assets) and how we keep it (the metadata). We have to say “no” when something is just outside the scope of the collection or would involve to much manual metadata entry. Whenever possibly we side with automation as opposed to human processing or cataloging."
