Tech Challenges Update: Mozilla, Python, C#, SMIL

Mike Linksvayer, December 2nd, 2003

October 23 we posted about Nathan Yergler’s ccValidator web app, developed in response to our list of tech challenges.

Challenged developers have been hard at work since:

  • Nathan Yergler has created mozCC, an extension for Mozilla-based browsers that reads and displays CC metadata as you browse.
  • In addition to creating mozCC and fixing ccValidator bugs, the amazing Nathan Yergler is working on ccRdf, a Python library for CC metadata.
  • Steve Griffin has created a C# library for CC metadata.
  • Lucas Gonze has created a spec for embedding CC metadata in SMIL.

Congratulations and thanks to Nathan, Steve, and Lucas! There are more challenges to take on, including many we don’t yet know about. Post about your work and ideas here or on the cc-metadata mailing list
