Metadata. Wikipedia sez it's "data about data," but really it's not that Zen-cryptic. It's just moar information that further describes some other bit of information--like something that tells you who created a certain file (like when you go into "File," "Properties" on a "Word" document), or in my case, where you can get the PSDs that correspond to a certain a skin.

Soo... while I kinda doubt that a lot of peeps who've purchased a "ready-to-wear" skin from my Suffugium vendor will ever read this blog entry, I've placed "metadata" about my skin in the "Description" field of the skin (right-click the skin and select "Properties")--namely a URL referencing the PSDs--because if you've purchased an "open" skin, you should have the PSDs as well (again this is kinda a cultural change--I'm just hoping that more people will investigate permissions, properties of the items they acquire in SL).

Oh, and if you happen to be here lookin' for PSDs:

e generation PSDs

Oh, it was fun seeing so many girls running around Suffugium, apparently slightly disconcerted at the scenery! ;)
