How many times have you seen a web site and said, “This would be exactly what I wanted— if only . . .” If only you could combine the statistics here with data from your company’s earnings projections. If only you could take the addresses for those restaurants and plot them on one map. How often have you entered the date of a concert into your calendar with a single click instead of retyping? How often do you wish that you could make all the different parts of your digital world—your e-mail, your word processor documents, your photos, your search results, your maps, your presentations—work together more seamlessly? After all, it’s all digital and malleable information—shouldn’t it all just fit together? In fact, below the surface, all the data, web sites, and applications you use could fit together. This book teaches you how to forge those latent connections—to make the Web your own—by remixing information to create your own mashups. A mashup, in the words of the Wikipedia, is a web site or web application “that seamlessly combines content from more than one source into an integrated experience.”1 Learning how to draw content from the Web together into new integrated interfaces and applications, whether for yourself or for other others, is the central concern of this book.
¿Cuántas veces ha visto usted a un sitio web y le dijo: "Esto sería exactamente lo que quería- si sólo. . . "Si sólo pudiera combinar las estadísticas aquí con los datos de las ganancias de su empresa proyecciones. Si tan sólo pudiera tener las direcciones de los restaurantes y colócalas en una mapa. ¿Cuántas veces has entrado en la fecha de un concierto en su calendario con un solo clic en lugar de volver a escribir? ¿Con qué frecuencia desea que usted podría hacer todas las diferentes partes de su mundo digital, el correo electrónico, los documentos procesador de textos, fotos, resultados de la búsqueda, sus mapas, sus presentaciones, trabajar juntos con mayor perfección? Después de todo, todo es digital y maleable que la información shouldn't a sólo encajan entre sí? De hecho, debajo de la superficie, todos los datos, sitios web, y aplicaciones que utiliza podría encajar. Este libro te enseña a forjar esas conexiones latentes a hacer de la web su propio por información remezcla para crear su propia mashups. Un mashup, en palabras de la Wikipedia, es un sitio web o aplicación web "que combina a la perfección el contenido de más de una fuente en una experiencia integrada. "1 Aprender a dibujar el contenido de la Web junto a nuevos interfaces integradas y aplicaciones, ya sea para usted o para otros, es el centro de preocupación de este libro.
