Playing with Linked Data, Jamendo, Geonames, Slashfacet and Songbird
Today, I made a small screencast about mixing the following ingredients:
- Linked Data, and in particular Music Ontology data ;
- Links from the Jamendo DBTune server to both Geonames and the Jamendo playlist generation REST web service ;
- The wonderful ClioPatria software, and in particular /facet, developed by Michiel Hildebrand ;
- And, last but not least, the amazing Songbird software.
All of that was extremely easy to set up (it actually took me more time to figure out how to make a screencast on a Linux box :-) which I finally did using vnc2swf). Basically, just some tweaked configuration files for ClioPatria, and a small CSS hack, and that was it...
The result is there:
(Note that only a few Jamendo artists are displayed now... Otherwise, Google Maps would just crash my laptop :-) ).
