About this Item

Web 2.0 Mashups: Making the Web Your Own
The Web contains thousands of mashups that recombine everything -- including Google Maps, Flickr,, NASA, the New York Times, and Wikipedia -- with useful information about travel, finance, real estate, and more. By fusing elements from multiple web sites, mashups are often informative, useful, fun, and even transformative. Dr. Yee's presentation shows you how to create and apply mashups to make sense of the web, especially in the context of libraries.
