Jamendo


Wondering what is going on with the jukebox?

The jukebox is constantly and randomly feeding music from Jamendo within a defined subset. That defined subset can be a number of things, but it currently is feeding from the "ambient" tag. Jamendo is essentially Flickr for music. So, just as individual SEAers can now upload their own photos to the coblog via Flickr, with Jamendo, individual SEAers can now upload their own music to the coblog. The main principle behind the coblog is that it is created by the people who use it. A basic structure is provided, but from there the users create the content. Already users create the textual content with their posts, they create the textual commentary with their discussion, they create the visual content via Flickr slideshows and embedded photos, they create the visual/auditory content via embedded videos (and soon to come feeded video player), and now they can create the auditory content via Jamendo.

Jamendo is all Creative Commons music and audio. This means that it is licensed for free use, publication (sometimes), and modification (sometimes). So, the type of audio that SEAers can now put up, is their own audio. There are many musicians in SEA and many in the extended network of SEA. These people can now upload their recorded music to Jamendo and have it fed directly to the Coblog. This just adds one more dimension to the possibilities of collaboration and sharing on the Coblog. In order to do this, we will create an SEA tag or two, just like we have done with Flickr. Then we will change the jukebox feed and voila!

If you are interested in doing this, comment here.

Any questions?

All it takes is participation...
