Hey, I was just wondering if when you say BiM you mean Binary Format for
MPEG-7 Metadata? I'm asking as that is a format with which I have really
no familiarity, although we have another guy here with lots of MPEG-7
experience his is more at the theoretical level, meaning I could never
ask him to build anything, and if I tell him I'm interested in building
something he talks my ear off. If so do you have any hints etc. for
working with BiM in vocabularies such as you described, and for which it
was not specifically designed?
Hope this isn't a big bother.
