Mash-Ups

If you haven’t heard of "mash-ups" before they are when someone takes an existing product and combines it with something new and cool. Kinda like a re-mix. Here is a great Mash-Up based on Google Maps, which I have covered before for FIspace. This Web Site let’s you find Wireless Internet spots using a Google Map. No more asking people "Do you have Wireless Internet here?" and having them look at you like your a Nerd from outerspace. Now if you want to know where to find "Wireless Hotspots" all you have to do is type in your location. Check out the sample map below.

  1. Yeah, I’ve wondered if we couldn’t do Google maps with labels for our office locations. How about Google maps to our Relays?

    Speaking of mash-ups, the July Wired has a good section on mash-ups of music, movies, logos, etc. If people can’t share copyrighted stuff, they’ll deconstruct the originals and share synthesized mash-ups.
