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

Have Fun - Do Good

As some of you know, part of my work is being the Community Builder for NetSquared , a project of Tech Soup that facilitates the adoption of social web tools by nonprofits and NGOs. 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.

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.
