For the Talis library mashups contest, and idea came from Fran Dowd on the LibraryThing mailing list:
I looked at the forum and I'm not bothered about the prize, and haven't time / space / skills to do the work, so I'll just put my idea up here and anyone else is welcome to it ...Sounds great!
I would like a site that linked Library stuff with Film/TV stuff (like being able to merge LibraryThing and imdb.com).
It's about taking the "work" encompassing "edition" capability to the next level, really.
I'd like to be able to see what movie versions or TV adaptations there had been of any book / play, write / read reviews that specifically referenced the original text and the adaptations and discussed various approaches, looped me back from film to original works, novelisations, graphic novels etc. (And if it could add DVDs to my Amazon rental list at the click of a button, that would be even better.) I'd want to be able to catalogue videos / DVDs in LT and link them to the relevant written work - BladeRunner, Throne of Blood, Importance of Being Earnest, V for Vendetta.
