This workshop is to see what sort of interesting and innovative applications people would build using the AnyMeta API and related technologies.
Mediamatic Lab has created a fascinating collection of social network websites with their CMS AnyMeta. Most of these sites are interconnected using Open-CI, Mediamatic's Open Community Infrastructure, an umbrella-name for a set of specifications which all use Open Standards to create a federation of social networks.
Besides www.mediamatic.net, a few examples of Open-CI-powered sites are:
You can see all the websites made by Mediamatic Lab on their website: www.mediamatic.nl
Arjan Scherpenisse will show you how you can make applications that interface with any AnyMeta website and he talks about the use of Python, Processing and Java libraries to connect to these sites. Examples of applications which integrate with AnyMeta are the ikCam photobooth and the various social rfid games like the installations developed at this year's Social RFID Hacker Camp.
10:00 – 11:30 AnyMeta introduction, Open-CI, API basics
11:30 – 12:30 Break
12:30 – 17:00 Hands-on prototyping sessions
Maarten Wolzak of Magnatron will explain how he built an iPhone App for a new version of the Digital Jewish Monument (another AnyMeta website by Mediamatic Lab). This application will be released in the iPhone AppStore later this year. He will show you how to use the iPhone and the AnyMeta API to interface with Mediamatic.net.
