Hi. Nice work on the revised doc, good to see it updated.

2.14 Finding Film Soundtracks  (Data Aggregation)


Marty wants to learn which of the ten biggest grossing Hollywood movies
of all time also had soundtracks among the ten biggest grossing film
soundtracks of all time. Imagine that some future version of the IMDB
site  exposes its information about movies as RDF. Further imagine that
the CDDB  site does the same for its information about music. Marty then
writes a  query to find the titles of the ten biggest grossing films. He
uses the  results of that query to query CDDB in order to filter the
films that did  not have top 10 soundtracks.

For the 'further imagine' bit I suggest referencing MusicBrainz 
(www.musicbrainz.org) rather than CDDB, since they _already_ expose
their database via RDF web service (well, HTTP ;) lookups, and under a 
much more liberal license than CDDB/Gracenote. 

http://www.musicbrainz.org/MM/ for info on the schema, protocol etc.

The RDF could be easier to find from entries like 
http://musicbrainz.org/album/eaa9ac50-47d9-4d98-87b1-658c0d02ac21.html
but I know it's in there somewhere...

So suggested replacement for "Further imagine" sentence: "This data
could be matched against _MusicBrainz's_ RDF listing of albums, tracks and
titles." or somesuch, and s/CDDB/MusicBrainz/ in the next sentence too.

cheers,

Dan
