Metamerica: Evolving the Governance of a Digital Democracy

from Shelly Palmer – Digital Wisdom (Chap. 1) on Rap Genius

Meaning

I coined the term Metamerica when I wrote a blog version of this section a few years back. To my immense disappointment, it has not caught on. What has caught on is the aggregation of data — now called “big data” so it sounds more important. Big data = Metamerica. Facebook Graph Search = Metamerica. Digital Healthcare records = Metamerica … I’m sure you see the pattern emerging.
