One of most interesting, and confusing, web 2.0 tools we learned about was mashups. Mashups are basically taking one tool and combining it with another to create a whole new product..
There are several sites out there that list many mashups. In exploring those sites, I came across one that interested me immediately: Access Denied Map. What this map does is highlight websites that have been banned or blocked and where this happened. It was fascinating to see what sites are being blogged (Blogger and other blogging sites were very common) and where they are being blocked.
I definitely see the potential of mashups in education. The possibility of combining Google Maps and Flickr for an exploration of mountain top removal; LibraryThing and Blogger; the possibilities are endless!
