Last Friday was the first Melbourne Facebook developer Garage. I had Friday off work anyway so I popped in for a couple of hours and next thing I know I was sitting on the discussion panel with Markus Weichselbaum (The Broth), David Eedle (collectZing), Terri Dentry (thinkRED), and Tom Beeby (TravelApps).
For me it was just so great to meet these people, plus all the other people I met at the event.

Wow! This actually seems to work. http://www.joost.com/
Unlike Qtrax it did what it said it would do. One downside is that some of the content seems to be only avaliable in certain regions which is a shame.
Is it ever going to let me download music?
Ok after a lot of messing around and thinking that Bebo was a broken platform I finally go my simple application to work.
I thought that the PHP library I was using was broken so I waited till the new version was released. Alas, it didn’t work either…
I was getting error 101, my application key was invalid.
Time to turn to the forums and I found this post http://developer.bebo.com/forum/viewtopic.php?id=235
My site is hosted on Joyent so I added the code suggested
and everything started working!
