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.

Mashups with Social Impact for the NetSquared Mashup Challenge

Beth's Blog: How Nonprofits Can Use Social Media

Via Britt Bravo Do you have an idea for how a mashup could be a tool for social change? NetSquared, a project of TechSoup, is awarding a share of $100,000 in prize money, and a trip to the NetSquared Conference, to the top 20 winners of the NetSquared Mashup Challenge. 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.

The NpTech Mashup Meme

Beth's Blog: How Nonprofits Can Use Social Media

I've had this post about a mashup between Idealware , TechSoup , and Social Source Commons in draft and was going over to Deborah Finn's Blog to grab the URL for her excellent post last week about Social Source Commons. I also stumbled across her more recent post about NpTech Mashups. So, let's unleash the NpTech Mashup Meme. Click through to see larger diagram.

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? speak, it's a web application that combines data from more than one source to create a new tool. 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. Someone should give Bob Dylan's publicist a raise.

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.

Predictions for 2009

Amy Sample Ward

So, here are my 2009 Predictions for the Social Web. 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.

Social Actions API, Semantic Web, and Linked Open Data: An Interview with Peter Deitz

Amy Sample Ward

I describe Social Actions as an aggregation of actions people can take on any issue that’s built to be highly distributable across the social web. I wrote a blog post called, Mashups, Open APIs, and the Future of Collaboration in the Nonprofit Tech Sector. The premise behind Social Actions is that there are enough actions floating around on the web that nonprofits produce, but that they’re not linked up properly or adequately syndicated.
