Mashups — a cause for excitement

One of the topics for the UContent book began to come into sharper focus today. Using a book called Library Mashups I learned that a good place to find mashups is WebMashUp — a directory of mashups and apis. I went there and began to explore and I found quite a few exciting examples that you can see on this page.

I’ve got two additional ideas for mashups that I would personally want to execute. One is a walking tour of England complete with links to photos, videos, and full text in certain places. Another is a mashup of a map of the United States and markers where historic events occurred or where classic pieces of American Literature were written. Again, there would be links to appropriate external content or media.
