Remember that contest we had awhile back, “The 'Beat the CEO' Contest"? We wanted a simple way to explain mashups to a non-techy. Your responses were awesome and we liked some of the analogies so much that we had our graphics folks come up with some simple pictures of mashups. It's our first "Mashup Trading Cards" series! Now you have another easy way to answer your boss when she asks "what's a mashup?".
Frankenstein is my favorite. Check it out the rest of Series #1:

Let me tell you a story about a hero. Mike Rollins is a systems engineer supporting a research effort for the Department of Homeland Security, which has received a $4.3 million grant and a lot of attention. Needless to say, Mike and his organization have some very important problems they are trying to solve.
Mashups help Mike with his problems in a very meaningful way. As Mike put it in a recent blog, 'a buddy of mine pointed me in the direction of a product called Presto...it puts us months, if not years, ahead of where we were'.
Mashups certainly make Mike a hero at work. Which also makes him a Mashup Hero to us. [Read More...]
