Metasearch and metadata

Thom Hickey in his blog Outgoing has a posting entitled "Metasearch and metadata" that talks the role controled vacabularies. Hickey is a chief scientist at OCLC and quite interested in metadata. His opinions on controlled vocabulary are worth reading and includes the importance of speed. Hickey has promised to follow-up with more on their experiments in avoiding/enhancing fielded searching later.
