How To Make Your Own Web Mashup
 
A Mashup is a web application that combines data from more than one source into a single integrated tool; an example is the use of cartographic data from Google Maps to add location information to real-estate data from Craigslist, thereby creating a new and distinct web service that was not originally provided by either source. Content used in mashups is typically sourced from a third party via a public interface or API. Other methods of sourcing content for mashups include Web feeds (e.g. RSS or Atom), web services and screen scraping.

Programmableweb.com provides this page describing How To Make Your Own Web Mashup. This will help you create a mashup and show you where to begin and how to get it done. It also links to many site's API profiles which you will need to create your mashup. Also, here is the API Dashboard at programmableweb.com, this will help you understand the most popular websites' APIs, so you can select which ones to use.


Steps in Creating Your Own Mashup
:

1. Pick a subject
 
2. Decide where your data is coming from

3. Weigh your coding skills
    Mashups, as of today, are mostly a programmer's affair although there are
    some tools such as MapBuilder and Wayfaring that can help you create basic
    maps without coding.

4. Sign-up for an API
    Most, but not all, API providers require you to have a developer/application ID,
    a user account with their service, or both.

5. Start coding

RegSeeker can automatically create a backup before deleting any registry entries.

 



Wise Registry Cleaner

Wise Registry Cleaner scans the Windows registry for invalid or obsolete information and presents you with a list of potential problems. To help you decide which items to delete, the program classifies them as `Safe to fix` or `Not fully safe to fix`. A built-in registry backup enables you to undo any changes, should problems arise from a clean-up.


 





8) Question of the Month about Technical Training:

Each month Jeff Love will answer a current or important question that we have received about computer and IT training and career development.


December 2007 Question of the Month: 

What is Green Computing or Green I.T., and how can I make my computing more environmentally friendly?


Answer:
Green Computing is the study and practice of using computing resources efficiently. Typically, technological systems or computing products that incorporate green computing principles take into account the so-called triple bottom line of economic viability, social responsibility, and environmental impact. According to the Silicon Valley Toxics Coalition, e-waste is the fastest-growing part of the waste stream in the U.S, and the E.P.A. says e-waste makes up 2% of solid waste. In addition, the toxicity of the components within this waste means that it actually exacts a higher toll on public health than its 2% share would suggest. More than 1,000 chemicals are used during electronics production, such as lead, mercury and cadmium, and many have been linked to cancer, reproductive problems and other illnesses. Green PC and the Green Computer Guide give you ideas and knowledge on how to make an environmentally friendly computer, offering tips on buying a Green PC and easy ways to make your computer energy efficient.

Here are some good green computing and green I.T. resources on the web:
