MusicPortl was a website created by Christoph Olszowka in 2006 for an API mashup contest put up by the German IT-magazine c't, which it subsequently won.
It aggregated information about music artists from various web services and displayed them on a single page. Sources included:
- MusicBrainz for Release information
- Last.fm for Genres and Similar Artists
- Wikipedia for Artist Biographies
- Flickr for Artist pictures
- YouTube for ...ahem.. Videos...
- Technorati for Blog Posts about Artists
The site had it's time and place, may it rest in peace.
If you're interested in what I am up to these days, you can find me on Twitter and Github.
