Later this month, the annual Open Source Convention (aka OSCON) will be hitting San Jose, CA. For this conference, NPR has teamed up with The New York Times to present Media Mashup, an event focused on exploring creative uses of content from the NPR API and Times APIs.
The day will start at 10:45am with a presentation by Derek Gottfrid on the Open APIs of The New York Times. My presentation on NPR, Open Content and APIs will follow Derek's in the same room, starting at 11:35am. Right after my session, we will go across the hall to hold our Media Mashup, starting at 12:30pm.
If you are interested in coming to the Media Mashup event, please let us know in advance by registering and giving us your thoughts on what you would like to discuss, review, code, etc.
For this event, we have provided several examples of mashup ideas in GitHub. They can be found on our Media Mashup splash page. Please feel free to explore these ideas, make them better, create branches, etc. And come to the session with ideas of your own as well. These mashups are really meant to just get the conversation/development started.
To keep on top of this event, ask questions about it, etc., please follow @NPRTechTeam and @TimesOpenon Twitter.
I should also point out that we will providing food and beverages for this event.
