Radio Labs at Mashed 08
Mashed 08 is just starting at Alexandra Palace and Radio Labs is sending a crack team of developers who will be building stuff with BBC radio and music metadata. And we've also pulled together some new data for you to play with for this weekend...
XMPP Now Playing feed
Live now playing data for Radios 1, 2, 1Xtra and 6Music featuring track information, MusicBrainz artist IDs and programme identifiers for /programmes
Audio archive of BBC radio
Access to audio for the past month for the 10 national BBC radio stations with the ability to request any segment of this, accurate to the second.
Live BBC radio streams
MPEG over HTTP.
Artist playcount data
Data for how many times each radio station and DJ have played an artist. Maybe you can build a recommendations engine?
RDF for bbc.co.uk/programmes
For the semantic web fans amongst you - RDF data for brands, series, and episodes based on /programmes
All the data will be found here shortly:
Also featuring our data from last year's Hackday (well, what's still available) including Top of the Pops historical data, John Peel data, now playing RSS and LiveText data.
