Ijo Pona is the Harrogate adventure blog written by a Funny Little Man. Andy is a freelance web designer in Harrogate and he is also a well-received sound artist and runs a mastering studio in Yorkshire. The Wire Magazine once described him as "... difficult to dislike." Still at my most enthusiastic and naive.
Funny Little Man – Harrogate
It has been a trying few days, with my health – so, I firmly buried my head on the sand and fiddled whilst Rome burned. What was the medium for this months drama-reducing fiddling? It was MusicBrainz.
MusicBrainz is a music / musician data silo which feeds lots of aggregated apps, such as Plex & the BBC, and it acts like a central database for the information about releases.
There are a few errors that need ironing out – but, I have been productive despite the background noise. Turns out fiddling, doing the small stuff is good for the soul.
I have achieved a great amount of ‘Good Things’ without getting dressed or having a shower – a huge amount of productive work that will stand the test of time. Data-wise, there is a trace of me for the rest of the internet.
This is quite humbling to tell you the truth. Thanks for the opportunity.
