Every day somewhere between 2 to 10 new mashups get added here at ProgrammableWeb. Which means there is rarely a shortage of interesting, inventive ones in the mix. This week's include a plot generator, a creative way to perform authentication, and mashups being used by PBS broadcasting.


  • PlotShot, the Random Plot Generator: A random plot generator with a twist, this site uses the Flickr API to retrieve shots that match the plots. Sometimes the result is a series of amazing matches, other times it is funny how wrong they are.
