Drunk in the USA: Let’s Get Mashed Up!

April 9, 2007

Mashups are, according to the big Wiki, “a website or application that combines content from more than one source into an integrated experience.”

You’ve probably seen, used, “experienced” these online globs of content without knowing it. More and more web companies are opening their source code or creating api’s to allow the use of their content in ways that are only bound by the imaginations of programmers. Are programmers the most imaginative people ? That’s debatable, but here’s one mashup that I think is pretty funny and interesting.

Did you know that Austin is the 5th Drunkest City in the USA?   or that Cleveland has the 2nd most alcoholics in the US behind Kansas City…Yikes and they don’t even have beaches….

Check it out by viewing this tidy little mashup:


One last thing about mashups… they don’t have to have a business purpose though many of them do…

See my next post on the Technology and Creativity Delta … coming soon.
