If you haven’t heard from me in awhile, this is why. Some of you may know I’ve been working recently on an NPR / Timeline Mashup:
http://johntynan.com/scripts/timeline/
(Note: These scripts are in their early stages and are certain to change).

I mostly have been doing this to learn about JSON and to create an example of what can be done using the new NPR API.

This script owes an incredible amount to the NPR Digital Media team. You can find out more about the NPR API here. You can also read about what they’re up to on their blog Inside NPR.org

This also owes a great deal to the Simile Timeline project. You can read the documentation here, or ask a question about the timeline widget here.

I’ve learned a great deal. In particular, the idea of cross-browser data exchange using a “callback parameter” is great! See this simple tutorial. Then too, it’s great to be working in Javascript again.

Let me know if you have any comments on the scripts. This is definitely a work in progress, but I think it’s a work that could definitely go somewhere.
