Interesting mashup

SocialFish

mashups web 2.0Take a look at this. It's a world map overlaid with all sorts of terrorist events in real time, updated "every 310 seconds". I don't buy all this fearmongering, personally, (I had to laugh at the links at the bottom - "Outbreaks/Bird Flu map - coming soon!!") - but the technology is cool. You could use this type of thing in far more useful ways for, say, an association with lots of international members and events. Makes the world seem pretty small, anyway.

Predictions for 2009

Amy Sample Ward

Mashups. Mashups are great. But I think 2009 will see a more refined world of mashups take over. We have seen plenty of mashups where a website is able to push together a mapping tool, some public data, and user-created content like comments. Mashups in this sense aren’t going anywhere, especially as platforms are built to help create them with less technical knowledge and in less time. Mashups of applications and spaces, not just information.

Gmap-Pedometer Mashup | Beaconfire Wire

Beaconfire Wire

Since this is a pedometer mashup, you can plot the points you walk or jog on the map, enter your weight, and the application will tell you how many calories you have burnt in the process. While the mashup is built for avid walkers and joggers, an interesting side benefit is that it can answer those distance questions you have always had. Then I am afraid you will have to find your own reason to play with the Gmap-Pedometer Mashup. :) Share and Enjoy: Categories: Cool Tools and Tips.

Drupal Themeing, and other projects

Zen and the Art of Nonprofit Technology

Doing a google map mashup of data in Drupal. I’m learning Drupal bit by bit - one of the first tasks was to learn how to make a new theme. It’s one of those things which is actually fairly straightforward-seeming … until you hit a snag. And then it’s opaque. One thing I learned is that it is incredibly sensitive to typos. One space accidentally inserted between the “<?&# and the “php&# led to a completely blank page. Ah well.

Tag Galaxy is a Flickr-based mashup where you input a tag, say "association", and it first shows you a bunch of "planets" with your tag and related tags. Image via Wikipedia Check this out. Then you can click on any of the planets, zoom in to see a whole raft pf photos, rotate each planet, spin the whole galaxy around, zoom in some more. It really has no point other than to search for tags in Flickr, which you can do, well, in Flickr, but it's a great way to waste time and not do any work.
