A Tie for Best Mashup

John Musser, July 17th, 2006

Weather BonkAt Mashup Camp last week each attendee was given one wooden nickel with which to vote for their favorite mashup. Then on both days there was a “Speed Geeking” session during which attendees rotated through the Great Hall getting 5 minute demos from each of the 20+ mashup contestants.

And who won? Once all the nickels were counted it was a tie between two great mashups Weather Bonk from David Schorr and HotCaptcha from Jeff Marshall at frozenbear. A final poll of the crowd lead to victory for Weather Bonk and a big congratulations David! (David also created the highly rated Golf Bonk and Ski Bonk mashups). BTW, if you need a custom mashup developed for your business, both David and Jeff are good developers to hire.

For a rundown of all the mashups check one of these three sites:

For more on the very fun and creative HotCaptcha see this story.

[...] A highlight of both past events has been the mashup competition including the speed geeking sessions and the big final announcements (see Camp 1 and Camp 2 summaries). The inaugural winner was the innovative Podbop, a mashup that combines band event data from Eventful with MP3 tracks — type in a city, get MP3s, discover a band you like, and go see them. [...]
