musicbeta.jpgFollowing on from Matthew Shorter's post, Tom Scott has now posted more details about the new BBC Music beta. It's available here on Tom's personal blog, derivadow.

The approach we're using to keep the Wikipedia data up to date is, I think, quite neat. Patrick has written a bot to monitor the Wikipedia IRC channel for updates - when it spot an update we fetch the new Wikipedia content. Oh and obviously all this data is rendered dynamically using the same MVC framework we are using for /programmes which means that updates happen almost instantaneously.

You can comment on Matthew's post and on Tom's.
