Content mashup

I don’t know if you are familiar with the term web2.0.┬áIt’s about using the content that’s already on the web. This webcontent you can use and merge with other content to produce new content. I recently found out a new tool from Yahoo. It’s called pipes. You can get any kind of data and organize it the way you want. Usualy it’s published in a xml/rss feed. For example a guy made a mashup from Flickr and Nu.nl(ducth newssite). He combined the words that were used in the title of the newsitem and link this with photo’s from Flickr.

I produced a little example of a mashup with traffic information and speedcamera’s on pipes. This is from the road i’m driving every day from work to home (the A4). It’s based on this one.
