The Presentation:

First, we will discuss what a mash-up is, and take a look at some of the best on-line examples.

Second, we will walk through a code sample of a simple mash-up: creating a slide show in Flash, using photos stored on flickr. Source code will be provided.

Third, a general discussion + question and answer period. Attendees are invited to bring URLs for their favorite mashups so that we can explore them together.
