Kim Plowright from the BBC was kind enough to invite me to speak to the BBC about online communities and MusicBrainz. The presentation went well and the question and answer session allowed us (Dave Evans, RJ@AudioScrobbler, Russ@AudioScrobbler and myself were in attendance) meet some of the BBC folks. Dan Hill from the BBC even asked me how the Advance Relationship work was going — I was expecting all kinds of questions, but I was surprised by that one.
Here are the presentation slides I used.

Are you able to tell us why the BBC invited you? (was it for them to write about communities or to help them with their own or something entirely different?)
It wasn’t the first — I think the idea was more that the BBC wants to learn from projects out there and apply that learning to their own projects. And music metadata is also a hot topic for them right now, so there was a double fit.
Was the meeting a Matt Webb project, Rob?
Nope — Kim Plowright was our host.
Matt and I were actually unable to go to it, which was a real disappointment. I was busy organising another BBC session over in Radio and Music with Jimmy Wales, the founder of Wikipedia. I think Dan Hill and Paul Hammond – other R&Mi people – went to it though.
