I had a great call with Lucas Gonze http://gonze.com/ the other day. He’s interested in Fission and decentralized identity and personal data stores.
He is the creator of XSPF https://xspf.org/ – the open source project and spec for sharing playlists.
We talked a bit about what a next gen playlist format might look like, how Webnative could be used with personal data stores. IPFS itself likely fits in here somewhere, too.
@icidasset is of course the author of Diffuse https://diffuse.sh who could be interested in supporting new playlist types. Conveniently, since he has also been the lead developer on Fission Drive, we might also add support there.
I also mentioned my friend
@depatchedmode and @robertDouglass as being interested in this topic. These two are exploring NFT land, and so we could do something forward looking that considers playlists as NFTs, playlists as bundles of song NFTs etc. etc.
The whole rest of the @fission team has lots of music interested people – I’ll let them say more in the comments, and if you’re not already in our Discord chat, there is
#music-exchange in there.
I suggest we do a kick off call that others can attend if they like, to discuss a bunch of this stuff. Register below or on Luma.
