Watch a Walkthrough of Our Mashup Camp Contest Winner
Here's a link to coverage of the mashup contest winner (me and Renat Khasanshyn - not often I get to see "me" and "winner" in the same sentence) over at ZDnet: Mashup culture shatters crusty, stodgy old approach to business app dev
They did a nice job with the video of David Berlind interviewing me showing a walkthrough of the mashup and a little about what we had to do to build it. I'd comment on how intelligent that person doing the demo looks, but I'm too modest.
One thing that didn't get mentioned is that Apatar - which Renat used to pull a data feed from Salesforce.com - is open source. It's free as "freedom" and free as in "beer". Hard to beat that.
Sadly, no walkthrough of my answer to the Starbucks finders on Programmable Web, the Starbucks Anti-Finder (on the right). Given how many stores there are, I think the real challenge is showing a map of coffeehouses that aren't Starbucks, so I created a Starbucks locater that can't find Starbucks, even if you were to feed the lat/long position to the map. You're welcome, Brian - now you don't need to see corporate coffeehouses. Version 2 will exclude all public corporations from the list, making cafe hunting even easier for the anti-corporate crowd.
And no, there is no such thing as Jose Cuervo cereal.
