Remix Your Web with Mash-ups
Posted by: Rob Hof on July 14, 2005
I had a lot of fun with my story on Web mash-ups, which runs in new issue of BusinessWeek. Mash-ups, named after hip-hop mixes of two or more songs, combine and remix the data and services on two different Web sites, sometimes competing ones, to produce an entirely new Web service. We have a slide-show tour of a representative sample of the best, such as HousingMaps.com, chicagocrime.org, and Book Burro. But I’d really like to hear from all of you about any mash-ups we haven’t uncovered. What’s your favorite? Send ‘em along through Comments, below.
