Mashup Contest
Set up as a competition, the first "Mashup Camp" was sponsored by Adobe, AOL, Sun, Microsoft, Google, Yahoo and others. It was hosted at the Computer History Museum in Mountain View, California in February 2006. The winning mashup was Podbop (www.Podbop.org), which combined a concert event locator site with MP3 samples of the upcoming bands. Second place went to ChicagoCrime.org (www.chicagocrime.org), which showed crime locations in Chicago by mashing up the crime data with Google Maps.
