My new favorite album.....
So I finally got around to poking at my digital music library and playing with rhythmbox again after almost a year after my move. I noticed the magnatune plugin and started poking at the available content in the catalog. Some of its not bad, but some of it's not to good. So instead of wasting my time hunting and pecking I decided to do a quick search for compilations. And I found this: The Red Hat Summit Compilation

First of all.. it's not that bad. I might even pony up and buy it.

Second of all.. wtf didn't I know about the existence of this until today?

Third of all.. I'd L-O-V-E to see more compilations of high quality CC licensed music, and I'd love to see them Fedora branded as part of a larger informational campaign about the availability of CC licensed content. The real question is can Fedora as a project grow to take up the banner of informing and educating about content licensing as well as code?

We're trying to take some steps for F7 to at least make the stuff more noticeable. The plugins got in to rhythmbox upstream and then I prodded hadess into enabling them by default. So Jamendo and Magnatude should at least be more obviously in people's face. We also have a list of ogg-based Internet radio stations in the default iradio playlist.

One thing that I'd like to make easier for F8 is having things like music, videos, examples, etc, etc on a Live DVD. For this year's Red Hat Summit, we're going to have a Live DVD in everyone's bag and it does have a nice Summit-specific background, a start page giving a little bit of information about the disc and some of the Red Hat videos that are out there. Doing this should be easier. But that's going to require some work in things like nautilus, etc in addition to the livecd-creator.

I played with the Jamendo plugin as well. One problem, no way to parse the catalog by language in the interface. On the one hand, I'm sure that great, but when trying to search the catalog through rbox for something worth listening to it blows monkey chunks. I am not equipped with the necessary language skills to enjoy French speed metal.

I do like the LiveDVD idea as a platform for content examples. But you might also want to poke at your corporate masters to have a series of these Red Hat branded compilations of music, One a year, every year. Doesn't have to be a large run of physical cds, it could be a glorified playlist instead really. The important point is the branding. Having a branded album sized package of 'new' CC licensed music would be a very useful talking point and an easy thing to point people to in Magnatunes are Jamendo. Something like:
"Just search for Red Hat Compilation Volume 3 and find music from the past year we are excited about."

Yeah, I think the interface definitely has room for improvement. But putting it out in front of people seems like a good way to raise awareness and then make progress.

Seems like a reasonable thing. It's right up gdk's alley, so I'll make sure he sees this :)

I already grabbed gdk by the ear concerning my new found joy.

The real question is can Fedora as a project grow a music content subproject, attracting a whole new type of community involvement other than byte twiddling monkeys so we can poop out edora branded compilations of music with some community editorial input and supplimental content like music reviews to hilight decent CC licensing artists on an ongoing basis.

God damn, i wish songfight had ogg streams. I could totally go for an rbox plugin to vote in songfight competitions out-of-the box in a fedora release.
