This is a field with a million different ways to interpret or apply something. It’s a field with a million different answers to one question and it is a field with a million questions that have no true answer. It’s hard to master this topic and it is even harder to keep pace with how quickly it moves and changes.
It has a million rabbit trails and “areas of specialization,” and even more that are no longer relevant or applicable. It’s dynamic and yet somehow manages to woo you in with creature comforts. It’s never stationary, but sometimes focuses on staying power. You can’t put your finger on it, yet we have to put OUR finger on it to do our jobs.
You often work alone, but your presence is felt by many. Everything is always different around you, yet you have to make it consistent. There is so much out there, yet you have to define the needle in the haystack so that it can be found.
THIS IS THE DOMAIN OF THE KNOWLEDGE WORKER

Metadata and Taxonomies are my thing. I spend an awful lot of time drinking coffee and having existential dilemmas on how to categorize what the hell I do for a living.
