Open Directory Project AKA ODP, or DMOZ, reared it’s ugly head again in the past couple of days, as noted here. Way back in 2008, when I wrote a post about possible corruption in the DMOZ editorial process, people were questioning the relevance of the once authoritative directory. So why is Google still using it’s data? Organizational inertia? Cost vs benefits not there to fix it? Corruption? I don’t know, but maybe if the DMOZ data screws up the knowledge graph for players important enough to get Google’s attention, things may change. Finally.
