CBS News Covers Mashups

John Musser, February 27th, 2006

CBSNewsVeteran technology reporter Larry Magid just published this good introductory story on mashups and Mashup Camp over CBS News. Nice to see some more mainstream media coverage.

[...] Newsweek’s March 6th issue covers the mashup trend in Time For Your Mash-Up?. The article covers all three main flavors of mashups: music, video, and web. As with the CBS coverage last week, it’s a good, concise, mainstream introduction.
