After a much needed break and an extensive camping trip, I’ve finally returned to the land of MusicBrainz. However, instead of returning to San Luis Obispo to tackle new challenges, I’m in London this week. The BBC invited me for a few days to explore the possibilities how MusicBrainz and the BBC can work together.
While I am in London I am checking mail and catching up on the happenings of the past couple of weeks. I am also starting to think about how to solve the various growing pains that MusicBrainz is experiencing at the moment. After my break I have a much clearer view of the world and a much better head space.
Stay tuned for some thoughts on how to tackle our current set of challenges!

welcome back ru!
good to hear you had (and are still having?) a good time! 😀
I am curious to see how the Beeb will become involved, if at all…
Is it possible to know why there are licensing issues between last.fm and MusicBrainz? It was a cool time when there was a synchronisation between last.fm and musicbrainz. 😦
Mainly because the data license contract between MusicBrainz and last.fm has not been signed. It appears that I can’t get any of the business people at last.fm to pay any attention to me. 😦
If you’d like to see this synch continue, then please bug last.fm to finally go and settle the license with MusicBrainz!
Maybe your trip to London is the perfect occasion to pay last.fm a visit & bug them ? 🙂
I already did that — I made a TINY amount of progress. We’ll see if this progress can be turned into something larger.
