Blogdex for read articles many articles are read without being blogged. Harvesting this information could be valuable. Design a database, with xml-rpc interface, for daily updates of read articles in aggregators.

playgrounds used to pump water from wells now, can i tap into the power generated at a gym. i’d join a gym which sold electricity generated from exercise, co-operatively splitting the profits.

On Bookmarks – like Paolo, I’m using Bookmarks as my own programmable application menu in the browser – links into Radio, mail, etc. Any reference is in my weblog, and news in my aggregator.

Weblogs are just one type of structured information Radio could possibly build. While Bookmarks are a handy application to build structured information while browsing, it may be easier for a Radio tool to build this directly. Scriplet controls into Radio to build the weblog, directories, blog roll, subscriptions…

Marc asks about consolidation … well I thought I gleaned this idea from somewhere!! – How the directory on XML-RPC.com works

Basically, in an outline element, if the type is “link” and the url points to a .opml file, the outliner will include that remote directory within the outline

Peace Project
Flash map world map. Blue lines on white background. Ambient sounds. MouseOver country. MouseClick on country expands “Peace” in that countries language and alphabet. Second click display pronounciation. Fun part of project would be collecting all the translations.

MIDI – Flash
Create a framework where detailed data from a MIDI stream can be assigned to graphic elements in a visualization. So, each note, velocity, duration, etc. is accessible to the visualization. This would primarily be useful for “live” electronic music performances. I believe this level of detail could create some especially wonderful audio-video mappings.

No doubt some software, or set of softwares, has this functionality (I’d be interested to hear which). So, to do something different, I plan to code the framework so that MIDI events are accessible from Flash MX animations.

In order for Flash to receive MIDI data, in Flash I would use the XMLSocket interface. This is the only way to receive an external stream.

So, I’d code a small .exe proxy, to receive MIDI In (configurable and filterable), and send a lightweight XML stream to a socket. Depending on efficiency of Flash, the XML could be little more than , or it could break the MIDI down into its parts.

Within Flash, there would be a component to register callbacks to classes of MIDI events. These callbacks could then manipulate some part of the animation.

Reason and Oxygen 8 is a sweet combination. One thing missing – easily applied patches on the MIDI control knobs. A small app could manage the patches. The app listens on the Keystation MIDI IN, translates according to the patch, and writes out on a virtual MIDI device, MidiYoke.

Performance mode for the app will list the configured patches, one click to switch. In Configuration Mode, you choose a Channel, Instrument, and Control Code for each knob. Would be nice to have clickable image maps from Reason.
