The latest in a flurry of press stories on mashups is from CNET this time: Mapping a revolution with 'mashups'. This fairly long article covers similar ground as prior stories. Mostly focused on maps where it's the 'ability for anyone to add information to a map that is increasing the usefulness exponentially and has inspired the mashup wave.' On the business side it notes how ads-on-maps or map merchant placements and sponsorships can be a great match for that vast local advertising market.
