NetSquared Mashup Challenge: How Do You Combine Data for Social Change?

Have Fun - Do Good

We're hosting a contest called the NetSquared Mashup Challenge that I wanted to let you know about, and am hoping that you'll pass on to social changemakers and web innovators in your community. You don't need to have tech expertise to submit a project to the Challenge, just an idea for a change you want to make that could be facilitated by a mashup. Wikipedia defines a mashup as, "a web application that combines data from more than one source into a single integrated tool."

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.

I remember leaving for Vegas and making a promise to Joe that I would submit a mashup to the 2009 Change the Web Challenge. The mashup was a map showing where people were volunteering in near-real-time. The real value to organizations is that they now have a dynamically updated map they can embed on their web site. So we are starting to map social entrepreneurs with the hopes that they might be able to make more of an impact working together than apart.

One of the best examples of the use of APIs are Google Map mashups. These are using data in your own databases, and grabbing maps from google maps and putting them inside your application. It allows nonprofits free access to data that they would normally not have access to (like mapping data), or would have to pay a lot for. I have dreams of applications that combine, say, available bed space in shelters and soup kitchens, all mapped for people to find.
