Very cool tool called "Universal Subtitles" to crowdsource the annotation of video with subtitling: http://universalsubtitles.org/en/
Semantic MediaWiki would be highly beneficial for the type of data that this site might contain. In Semantic MediaWiki, pages can be given properties using the syntax [[Property::Value]]. For example, on Face the Nation, August 15, 2010, you could have
[[date::August 15, 2010]] [[country::United States]] [[video-url::http://www.cbsnews.com/video/watch/?id=6775099n]] [[transcript::http://www.cbsnews.com/htdocs/pdf/FTN_081510.pdf]] [[participant::Tim Kaine]] [[participant::Ed Rendell]]
Properties can be handled in Infobox/template code so editors don't need to worry about it too much.
The main advantage of having this data encoded in a structured way is the ability for both user and inline queries of the data to generate lists and reports automatically that might otherwise need to be kept updated by hand. (And generally, it opens up a whole range of possibilities for interesting data analysis and presentation.) See  for an example.
I am a PHP developer and have been working on a Semantic MediaWiki extension for a few months, so I am in a position to implement the necessary structure (and possibly provide custom code for any custom behavior needed). Mike 06:31, 18 August 2010 (UTC)
- Thanks Mike. The semantic wiki extensions have been installed, and would be great to have any help to utilize it. -- Fuzheado 13:22, 4 February 2011 (UTC)
