An increasingly common problem on the web (not to mention Computer Science in general) is the integration of disparate data sources.

Whether those data sources are accessed via Web Services, APIs, databases, scraped-content, or even plain old flat files seems to be less and less relevant in comparison to the quick and efficient production, consumption and integration of the data itself.

For this reason, BCmoney will be launching a number of new products in 2009-2010, the early prototypes of which can be seen here:

These represent a departure from the typical destination site by integrating data from various sources in dynamic, user-defined ways. Look for more continued developments in these and other aspects of the BCmoney MobileTV service in the near future!

BC$ = Behavior, Content, Money

The goal of the BC$ project is to raise awareness and make changes with respect to the three pillars of information freedom - Behavior (pursuit of interests and passions), Content (sharing/exchanging ideas in various formats), Money (fairness and accessibility) - bringing to light the fact that:

1. We regularly hand over our browser histories, search histories and daily online activities to companies that want our money, or, to benefit from our use of their services with lucrative ad deals or sales of personal information.

2. We create and/or consume interesting content on their services, but we aren't adequately rewarded for our creative efforts or loyalty.

3. We pay money to be connected online (and possibly also over mobile), yet we lose both time and money by allowing companies to market to us with unsolicited advertisements, irrelevant product offers and unfairly structured service pricing plans.
