Why The Longplay Face | Collection

I giggled at quite of few of these mashups.

THE WALK OF LIFE PROJECT

The thesis: any film is improved by playing Walk Of Life by Dire Straits over the ending.

The proof: this website.

(this is absorbing and brilliant)

Lockdown – Marco.org

A superb piece by Marco Arment prompted by the closing of Google Reader. He nails the power of RSS:

RSS represents the antithesis of this new world: it’s completely open, decentralized, and owned by nobody, just like the web itself. It allows anyone, large or small, to build something new and disrupt anyone else they’d like because nobody has to fly six salespeople out first to work out a partnership with anyone else’s salespeople.

And he’s absolutely on the money when he describes what changed:

RSS, semantic markup, microformats, and open APIs all enable interoperability, but the big players don’t want that — they want to lock you in, shut out competitors, and make a service so proprietary that even if you could get your data out, it would be either useless (no alternatives to import into) or cripplingly lonely (empty social networks).

I share his anger.

Well, fuck them, and fuck that.

timg

This is a really nice and simple idea: view photos from a specific place taken at a specific time. Voyeuristic fun.

Johnny Cash has been everywhere (man!)

A nifty little mashup from Music Hack Day London 2012.

stevenberlinjohnson.com: Anatomy Of An Idea

Steven Johnson describes the beautifully chaotic way that ideas collide and coalesce. Oh, and this bit…

Listening to Cerf talk about the origins of the Internet — and thinking about the book project — made me wonder who had actually come up with the original idea for a decentralized network. So that day, I tweeted out that question, and instantly got several replies. One of those Twitter replies pointed to a Wired interview from a decade ago with Paul Baran, the RAND researcher who was partially responsible for the decentralized design.

That reply on Twitter was from me!

Upperdog Labs: Video Canvas Responsive Design - YouTube

I never expected to see a cross between responsive design and AR, but here ya go:

A silly mashup of HTML5 technologies: We use the canvas to capture the contents of a video element. The canvas then identifies the blue markers and overlays an iframe on top of it. The iframe contains our website (upperdog.se) which has a responsive design.

Mario Portals Test 3 - YouTube

What if Mario had a portal gun?

Mashup Breakdown - Girl Talk

A visual representation of each track on the new Girl Talk album.

Linked Data at the Guardian | Open Platform | guardian.co.uk

A great write-up of the latest additions to the Guardian's Open Platform API including a lukewarm assessment of Semantic Web technologies like RDF.

Open Data for the Arts – Human Scale Data and Synecdoche – Blog – BERG

An inspiring presentation by Tom Armitage on the value of open data.

Everything Is a Remix

It's well worth paying attention to this site, the accompaniment to the four-part series of videos entitled "Everything is a Remix."

What Was I Listening To? - Andy Smith

A cute little mashup: find out what you were listening to according to Last.fm when you were posting to Twitter.

Star Wars Weather Forecast « Tom Scott

An excellent way of visualising weather. Brighton is currently like Hoth.

Amazon® AWS HMAC signed request using PHP

Since Amazon decided to require signed requests for its API, I'm going to have to use this code to keep Huffduffer and The Session working. Grrrr... cool APIs don't change.

moomazon

Here's a nifty little mashup from Simon: create Moo cards with book details from Amazon.

Flickr Services: Flickr API: flickr.places.placesForUser

This new Flickr API method makes it really easy to get a list of visited places for a Flickr user.

JavaScript Rock Star

Guitar done with YouTube and JavaScript. John Resig is nuts, nuts I tell ya!

Nihilogic : WolfenFlickr 3D - Wolfenstein 3D / Flickr JavaScript Mashup

This mashup serves no purpose other than to make me cackle with glee. Navigate Flickr pics on the walls of Castle Wolfenstein.
