YouTube Data API v3 : How to get $DEVELOPER_KEY

on Wed, 12/25/2013 - 22:43

In the PHP example code for Google's YouTube Data API v3 there is a variable that calls for a developer key. Without this key the example code won't work, but getting that key is not obvious due to recent changes in the cloud console interface. Here's how you get it.

First, the name of the key that you're looking for isn't "developer key" anymore, it's an "API key" for "Public Access". This is opposed to the OAuth credentials. If you want to do something that requires authenticated access, you'll need the OAuth credentials. For searching and listing videos, you don't.

Your turn: help blind musicians have music to read

on Wed, 10/09/2013 - 11:34

Did you know that blind musicians are just as capable as sighted musicians? Of course you did! Stevie Wonder and Ray Charles made sure of that. But they didn't have to read music to achieve their success. Blind musians who need to read notes, to play Bach, Beethoven, or Mozart, need scores in braille format. Guess what? These scores don't exist in adequate numbers. Blind musicians give up on their ambitions to study, not because they can't play, but because the world hasn't provided them the scores they need to read. I consider this an outrage and a tragedy, and I propose we fix it
