Mashups using the same API (1)
No need to send your users off to get embed code, the snippet of text needed to include videos and other rich media in a web page. All you need is the original URL to the content and Embed.ly returns the HTML you need, along with plenty of other useful meta-data. And it supports an impressive list of over 100 sites.
What happens when the API is technically secure but the environment, whether widget, web site or mashup, is not? Recent security breaches in MySpace and Yahoo, which led to the release of semi-embarrassing photos of prolific celebs Paris Hilton and Lindsay Lohan, points out the added opportunities for hackers in the open web.
In today's globalised world most products you see on the store shelf were probably made from parts sourced from all over the world. As we become more aware of the environmental impact of transporting these parts, it is important to have easily accessible information on how a final product comes together. Sourcemap is a project of the Media Lab at MIT, and it allows users to easily visualise what components go into a product, how they are shipped, and what the environmental impacts are.
