  • Mashups
    • A digital mashup is a digital media file containing any or all of text, graphics, audio, video and animation drawn from pre-existing sources, to create a new derivative work
    • http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mashup_(digital)
    • Achieved using RSS, APIs (Application Programming Interface), widgets, gadgets, ‘stuff’
    • Purists say if you use “glue stick’” it is not a mashup, e.g. simply adding a Flickr ‘widget’ to your blog
    • If you use “glue logic” it is a mashup e.g. Yahoo Pipes to combine feeds and sources, filter, process/transform

  • And finally..
    • A photo I took at Prague Zoo 2 years ago and uploaded to Flickr
    • Picked up in a search for training providers along with some of my Slideshare presentations and my Twitter profile (I never did find out what the exact search strategy was )
    • Person was intrigued by the photo, investigated me further and the result was a new project and more business!
