I worry about things like Google Workspace sometimes.

I think this is a good thing.

@dsalo may I presume you are introducing some non-bibliographic scheme? PBcore, FGDC, DatwinCore, or the like? Getting professionals to think outside the bibliographic universe, when appropriate, is important for a well-rounded view of metadata.

@tdotrob I don’t know if it is working…it is too early for me to have noticed any change in my feed. In the annotations, though, I talk about how this is an interesting, nuanced approach to improving community engagement.

This is an interesting article because it ends with a quote from the chief product officer about prioritizing quality comments over engagement, and admits that recent changes have increased quality at the expense of engagement.
