Mashups – Putting it All Together September 22, 2006

Posted by greentreadmill in mashups.

Many Web 2.0 services have the potential to share content with blogs. For example, in the sidebar to the right there is a window that displays recent photos from my Flickr account. There is also a section that displays tagged links from my del.icio.us account. Elements that display information from another source are called “mashups”. In this instance, these mashups are accomplished by selecting “widgets” from the WordPress presentation dashboard, a relatively simple process.

Mashups can present an amazing range of materials, including video, audio, photography, links, news feeds, maps, and communications tools.

The Wikipedia entry for “mashup” provides a lot of additional information.
