Greenbelt Collage

Greenbelt is Europe’s leading Christian Arts Festival, and an event I’ve been involved in for over a decade now. This year, we’re trying something new (to this event) by encouraging everyone who attends the festival to tag materials relating to the festival with the tag ‘greenbelt2005’, focussing primarily on flickr, del.icio.us, and of course technorati.

We’ll soon be offering a simple interface to explore the contributed content through the festival’s website, but my hope is that we will be able to open up the data we collect to introduce more people to the concept of a ‘remixable’ web. It’s all very last minute, and details are still being worked out, but I’m excited by the potential to open up the concepts to a new audience. Any suggestions of ways to work that out or examples of other projects that have opened up content to a broadly non-techie audience would be much appreciated.

  1. Hmmm. I tried tagging an entry on my blog. A day later – still no sign of it on Technorati. I wonder what I’m doing wrong???

  2. Hi Peter,

    As well as putting the link you need to make sure there’s the attribute rel=”tag” in the link. ie.

    <a href=”http://www.technorati.com/tag/greenbelt2005″ rel=”tag”>greenbelt2005</a>

    Hope that works for you.
