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.

Lame spam of the day: spam mashup

Robert Weiner

Another newbie spammer playing with a toy? This plain-text spam has no sender, subject, formatting, or graphics. Nothing unusual there. The bonus is that it mashes up a variety of spammer techniques, starting with a list of 3-letter words running from "act" to "dry". After that comes what looks like an email header, then some spam text, then a bunch of blank lines, and finally, to cap the effort, random text from travel guides. Here''s the whole thing (minus the links): act.

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.

Master Mashup: Viral Marketing from Bob Dylan

Museum 2.0

He or she has created one of the most innovative, enjoyable mashups out of a cultural icon. What's a mashup? One fun example is overplot , a mashup that takes quotes overheard in New York City ( the data ) and places them on a Google map (the tool), so you can browse the quotations by address. This mashup turns a simple list of quotes into a geographically browsable conversation. Someone should give Bob Dylan's publicist a raise.

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.
