The Guardian adds MusicBrainz IDs to its articles via its Open Platform

Martin Belam from the Guardian says:

The announcement is that we’re adding Linked Data to the Guardian’s Open Platform. We’ve tagged about 20,000 articles with MusicBrainz IDs and ISBNs, and we’ll add more sources soon.

So, for example, if you want to use our Cee Lo coverage on your web site or for an iPhone or iPad app or wherever, you can query the Open Platform to get content from the Guardian to integrate your app.

There are more details in this introduction and more more information on how to search the Guardian with MusicBrainz IDs. I’m really stoked that MusicBrainz IDs are reaching beyond the music world. If we reached mainstream journalism today, where are we going tomorrow?

Thanks for all of your hard work Martin!
