Article category: Fun with PBCore
Please help with the PBCore User/Non-user survey
The PBCore team is looking for all feedback on use and non-use of PBCore by people who manage audiovisual collections. This’ll help inform the work happening now on improving the schema, and whatever else can be done to make PBCore more useful. You can take the survey here:
Please do it, you know you want to! It’ll be good for you!
Oh, also, if you take the survey before May 5, you have a chance at winning a PBCore mug, which will feature our recently created new PBCore logo! Who wouldn’t want a PBCore mug? Everyone who completes the survey will be entered in a drawing, and three winners will be announced on Friday, May 9th.
The logo is pretty cool, no?
Making PBCore End User Friendly
Sites using the current beta of the module can now export a node as XML as well as dump of their site specific configurations making it easier to compare how organizations are implementing PBCore in practice.
The PBCore module for Drupal is still rough around the edges, but the structure is now there for anyone with even basic PHP skills to contribute.

I'm a big nerd. I spent the last hour making wordles out of the pbcore elements. Its for a slideshow I'm putting together. It was so much fun to see the elements in colorful wordcloud form, that I just kept making them.
The biggest font are the mandatory elements, medium font are recommended elements, and small font are optional elements. I didn't include the essenceTrack sub-elements, but everything else should be there. Feel free to use these, or make your own at http://www.wordle.net.
