Veteran 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. And, as a bonus, you can also listen to Larry's podcast interviews with myself, Taylor McKnight (creator of Podbop which won the best mashup award at last week's Mashup Camp), and Adrian Holovaty, creator of mashup ChicagoCrime.org (which won the second-place award last week and earlier won the 2005 Batten Award for Innovations in Journalism).

[...] Newsweek&#8217;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&#8217;s a good, concise, mainstream introduction. (Thanks to Dion Hinchcliffe for pointing me to this story.) &laquo; home | March 6th, 2006 | Posted by John Musser in News [...]
