Come see me in booth #9776 at the NRA Show in Chicago – May 19th – 22nd!

Exciting things are happening at Spillover! We’ll be unveiling a whole new backoffice suite for email marketing, web design and maintenance, search engine optimization and ecommerce. You won’t want to miss it.

I would also like to meet you in person. So come see me.

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.

Did you know that Lambard Street is in the Guiness Book of World Records? Yep, it’s the most crooked street in the world apparently.

I bet you didn’t know that on April 8th it is also the site of one of the best ideas I’ve heard of in a while. The “Bring Your Own Big Wheel Race.”

What a great event. Who ever thought this one up gets the e=MC3 award in my book. It’s one power more than genius.

Large corporations the world over should be sending CEO’s to race in it. They should be creating Big Wheels with sponsorship stickers all-the-heck over them, like Nascar. Their should be video of them on YouTube the next day. What a opportunity for the price of a big wheel and plane ticket.

For the most crooked street in the world…Somebody’s got it straight. Nice work.
