Jeff Young and Outgoing‘s Thom Hickey are working on developing a
Metawiki to hold structured metadata along with each record.

Talis advisor Paul Miller (of Common Information Environment fame) comments:

It would be interesting – in the spirit of openness and cooperation – to understand any relationships between the [Silkworm] Directory and OCLC’s MetaWiki.

Contrast this with recent ideas about a WikiCite project for annotating all references that might be used in books or encyclopedia articles, and you can see a lovely tool just waiting to emerge.

The Wikimedians don’t care about the differences between the Silkworm Directory and the Metawiki and Wikidata; they just want to get down to creating annotations as soon as possible. People can argue over what format they should be in and how they should be propoagated later…

Nothing goes with OCLC Cake (entered and deleted more than once from WorldCat) and the Silkworm project like a little practical physics to disseminate it to the world.
