Syndicate: NewsML and Art Categories


from: Ken Feingold, New York City
to:   Syndicate mailing list 
date: 8 September 2000
subject: NewsML standard needs input

NewsML, "an XML-based standard for the management of multimedia news" is
currently under development by the International Press
Telecommunications Council (http://www.iptc.org).  It is likely to
become an international standard for the further automation of news
transmission, newsbots, etc. According to IPTC, "The IPTC Category Code
Working Party devised a new hierarchy to describe the content of news
material ... "

As you will notice below, Media Art, Performance Art, Installation Art,
Net Art etc., etc. do not appear to be Subject details of either the Art
or Media subject areas. Since the IPTC standard has already gone beyond
just referencing Art and has included, for example, Bullfighting, I leave
my usual position of insisting that we should not ghettoize our practice
with such hairsplitting and bring this to your attention as in need of
repair before it becomes institutionalized. In case you might think that
the standard does not have the ability to get into such detail, have a
look at the extremely detailed list of news categories for Sport (although
Skateboarding does not appear ...) below.

You may also find it problematic that Media appears under Economy,
Business & Finance, defined as "All matters concerning the planning,
production and exchange of wealth".  Further, you may wish to review and
comment on other subject definitions in the full document following your
area of interest & expertise.

The IPTC will have a meeting to ratify the XML DTD for NewsML at their
October meeting in Amsterdam. At the end of this message I have copied
their "Rules for Processing Changes".
 
These are the current subject listings for Art, Media, and Sports
(included for comparison) from their "Information Interchange Model
Guideline 4", exported as text from their application "iptcsubview.exe".
See "Subject Reference System" at http://www.iptc.org/catguide.html .
