  5. Merzbau In 1923 Kurt Schwitters began to construct his ultimate work of art. It began as disparate pieces of collage and assemblages round the studio walls, which over time were connected by string, then wire, then wood, and finally plastered wood. His quot;Merzbauquot; gradually took over the downstairs and when it required more space for expansion, Schwitters cut a hole in the ceiling and gave notice to his upstairs lodgers. Into the individual quot;grottosquot; of the Merzbau Schwitters placed a bizarre collection of objects gathered from his friends and fellow artists, anything from a stolen sock to a broken pencil.

  9. A composite application defines an application built by combining multiple existing functions into a new application Composite applications often incorporate logic to control how the multiple functions interact with each other Composite Applications
  10. People often compare composite applications to mash-ups. According to Wikipedia, Composite applications Leverage enterprise- ready sources of information, while mash-ups rely on web-based, and often free sources. This is changing.
  11. Microformats A microformat is a web-based data formatting approach that seeks to re-use existing content as metadata. Microformats allow people and machines to access the same information e.g. contact information, geographic coordinates, calendar events
