This weekend I had some flashbacks about my time adding content to Amapedia… I was playing around with Twine and seeing if I could organize things using a combo of Twine and Freebase, so I was creating Twines and then trying to add links to freebase from there.
It was a good thought, but it didn’t quite work. Freebase cannot be accessed without login, so Twine wasn’t able to correctly generate previews. Also, Freebase’s URLs are a little worrisome. Things like:
Not easy to see what you are pointing to. So I gave up on this and will change my playing attention to Twine’s RDF and Freebase APIs. Let’s see what I can use from those.
So sad it’s Monday already. Another busy week ahead.
