Content mashup

I don’t know if you are familiar with the term web2.0. It’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.
