Thanks for the Mashups

Wednesday, November 21, 2007 9:09 AM

Tomorrow, Americans celebrate Thanksgiving. It's a time to give thanks for things that one has and holds important in their life. In that spirit I want to thank our developers for giving us feedback to create a better product, building a community by responding to others in our forum and creating some cool mashups that will act as a base of learning material for new developers as we open up the mashup editor to larger audiences.

Here are a few recent mashups that have caught our attention:

Mick C has put together a mashup that takes the most popular searches from various sources and combines those with the Google AJAX Search API to get the latest news, videos and search results about those items.

Toronto Buddhism
Terence Lo's Toronto Buddism mashup combines a map of Buddhism locations in Toronto, Book results, Videos, Podcasts and images to create the ultimate Buddhism guide for those living in or visiting Toronto.

Joke of the Day
Add a gadget to your iGoogle homepage that displays the joke of the day from three different sources. Karthik's gadget has become one of the most visited apps built with the Google Mashup Editor. Deploying your app as a Google Gadget and adding it to the iGoogle directory is the easiest way to get traffic for your application.

If you have a mashup you've built with the Mashup Editor and want to share it, please post it in our Mashup Gallery or tell us about it in our developer forum.
