Would really appreciate any volunteers who could test my #discodev entry http://bit.ly/n7WhXI

It's for a competition to develop something to show how reusable/computer readable data can be exploited. My entry links between records in a large library catalogue (called COPAC) which relate to composers and information about the composer elsewhere. You can read more and fund out how to try it out at http://bit.ly/n7WhXI

Looks like the problem with pictures is down to the BBC making a change and no longer serving RDF - which is, to say the least, a real pain :( They do offer xml and json, and say they hope to make rdf available in the near future. I think the new data feeds are richer in terms of additional information than previously, but for some reason they don't include the images :(

I like the fact the image adds some interest to the page, and I'm sure there are other ways of getting it. On the otherhand the new BBC data has things like reviews of releases etc. which is really more 'interesting' information. Not sure whether I should spend time reinstating the pictures or look at the new info from the BBC.

Thoughts welcome...

Now I have to organise all the people I know into categories? Honestly I have enough trouble doing this with books!
