Global Hacker Advocate at Spotify
My mom's school blocks Wikipedia, so I created a quick app to send the contents of Wikipedia pages to her inbox.
I started this app at another hackathon, but today, I finally got images working.
merchr is simply a database of artists and their merch store links. Everyone uses different websites to sell their merchandise, and there isn't a central repository of those links. We started with the top 50 artists from Echo Nest, and we want this database to be updated by the community.
We create a short URL that gives an artist analytics about their merch store traffic.
Eventually, we want to build an API to surface this data with a given Echo Nest, Soundcloud, Rdio, 7digital, or Spotify ID.
Beagle is a recommendation engine and app that takes your playlist of favourite / starred songs (initially from Spotify) and recommends you a classical music playlist based on what other people have listened to.

Music recommendations from your Tumblr friends inside Spotify.
Home page: A clickable grid of all of your friends. A combined feed from all of your friends in a list view.
Friend profile: A list of all their music recommendations.
In the future, this would be integrated into the Spotify Discover feed. Here's how a story would look:
- OAuth to actually pull in your real contacts
- Filter out users who haven't posted any music
- Drag a song to the sidebar of the app to submit a song to Tumblr
Ever wanted to just clap a rhythm and then have a song play along with your clapping?
Now you can.
Send a 10-second music clip to anyone.
Think Snapchat for music.
Search for any song using the Spotify Web API, then create a 10-second clip from the 30-second preview MP3.
Then you can select multiple contacts to send the clip to.
We used SendGrid to send the email. In the mobile web view, we used SoundManager 2 for the visual effects.
If the user wants to listen to the full song on Spotify, they are offered a link to play it there.
