BBC Backstage – public media mash up

Bringing the long tail of publicly-funded content into play for others to use and build-upon for non-commercial purposes is part of the long-term rationale of the BBC's Backstage Project.

Launched in May 2005, BBC Backstage opens up BBC content for the developer network – in order to encourage innovation and support new talent. Their blog can be found here.

Tom Loosemore, Head of Strategic Innovation at BBC New Media, will be talking about the BBC Backstage project and community building more generally – and taking your questions – at the next NMK Beers & Innovation night on Thurdsay 27th April.

He may also be joined by an external developer who has created an interesting prototype by mashing-up BBC content with external content. We'll keep you updated on that front…

Tickets For Beers & Innovation 3: Web Services & Mash-Ups can be booked here.
