Now try to change the country field to Ghana. Note, if you will, the result: Ghana is not in the list of countries... Why are even these fleeting elements of identity, that pleasing sight of Ghana nestled in between Germany and Gibraltar, being denied me and my countrymen.

66 Ways to Franco
Being an inquiry into the travails of metadata... Counting the ways to Franco was an excursion into the realm of metadata, matters of syntax, and a contemplation of the hive mind of the web...

People label things to remember them and the patterns they use are worthy artifacts even in their imperfect glory.
