Metadata can narc you out

Few weeks ago in our iPhotography class we discussed metadata.  How it captures so much useful information.  Someone during the class pointed out that they thought there was some information we might not want captured.  Guess they were right since I found this ARTICLE about a photographer who stole some camera equipment and the way they tracked him down was from the metadata in pictures he posted that he took with the stolen equipment.

So, the other day I noticed while I was speaking to a group that people seemed somewhat lost while I was describing something.  It got me thinking that often in the tech world, lot of things that are talked about might be lost on some people.  Below I am pasting a description…and I wonder how many of you understands what they are talking about.  Please read it and answer the attached poll.
