If you're a sucker for the semantic web and the romantic royal wedding, heads up: AdaptiveBlue's GetGlue entertainment social network has a deal with CNN around coverage of Kate and Will's Big Day.
According to the site's blog, CNN viewers can earn stickers all week for watching Anderson Cooper 360° and other special coverage of the Royal Wedding. They can check-in to AC360° and CNN’s other series through GetGlue's apps or its website.
Other TV coverage sites from which to earn stickers -- which let you rate as a recognized fan on a particular topic -- include:
- Westminster Abbey with CNN’s Piers Morgan
- Hyde Park with CNN’s Kiran Chetry
- Buckingham Palace with CNN’s Anderson Cooper
- CNN Royal Wedding, and
- Imperial State Crown. That will be the fifth and final sticker awarded to users who obtain each of CNN’s other Royal Wedding stickers.
Stickers began being awarded at the start of the week, but there's still time to catch up.
As a refresher, AdaptiveBlue maintains a semantic database of objects across the web, so it knows that a certain tv show, for instance, is a specific object wherever it appears on connected web sites. So, when you check in that you’re involved in it, you are checking into that as a singular object on the web.
By the way, you may want to check out TVNewser for live online coverage of the big event tomorrow.
