I found this on YouTube after following a Twitter Feed to first of all this blog post 


quote from above…. “As a knock-on of this there’s been a large amount of media buzz about the use of Twitter as a mob-sourced geo-mashup generator to show snowfall.  Twitter users have been posting the first half of their postcode, plus the amount of snow in their location. 0 = no snow, 10 = bucket loads. ie: “#uksnow W12 9/10″  Developers have been mashing-up that data. Check out Ben Marsh’s neat, live Google Map mashup of this: #uksnow Tweets

Well there would have been but…

I really liked flickrSlidr BUT after choosing a great selection of images and creating the slide show ….and trying every which way I could to upload to the blog, I then found it has

7/25 more on mashups

Mashup – flickriver badges, this uses a flikr photostream and creates a radom selection of thumbnails that changes each time the page reloads. You can like to specific users /groups or sets of photos from that user, or images using the same “tag” or just random images
I like this “mashup” and will use it with students in the Trendhub and maybe on Blackboard

Flickriver badges can be found at http://www.flickriver.com/badge/create

The one below uses a selection from a gobal tag (Hats)
it looks at all images on Flickr tagged with the word Hats

This next selection takes the most recent uploads at random from the

Flickr group “colorfields”
“This group has a simple concept: take photos of a frame-filling field of A SINGLE COLOR and post that. It can be textured, have imperfections, etc…but the frame should be filled with one color. They should be abstract enough that the color is clearly the focus, and the most important thing in the photo.”

Use the Color Fields Color Finder to locate photos of a particular color.

I’ve used the colour finder above and the multicolor search lab with a couple of students last week when looking at trends and colour pallets
