Mashup Events this week

For all you geeks out there. There are two mashup events around MIT this week.

If you are confused already, here is what a mashup is from the About Mashup Camp site:

Mashups (be they software or content-oriented) are most often characterized by the way they draw upon functionality and/or content from two or more sources (at least one of which is third-party to the developer) to produce a new creative work. For example, if a birdwatcher "mashed up" her own database of birdsightings (by GPS coordinates) with the functionality and content of Google Maps, the resulting visual presentation where the locations of birdsightings are interactively overlayed on top of a map within the context of a Web browser could be considered a mashup.

First event,

Room 32-144
