Interesting NY Times article on Google Mashups…

There is an interesting article in the technology section of today’s NY Times on Google map mashups. One that’s fascinating is the mashup that purports to locate an airplane in flight, listing the location, altitude, speed, and arrival time. I didn’t try it, as it appears to cost $10/month…but I love the combinations of technologies that are being pulled together via AJAX and other similar tools/philosophies. These somewhat organic combinations of widgets, API’s etc. are part of the Web 2.0 “movement.” Lots of good stuff out there! Of course, the facility that our kids have with technology can be surprising, and who knows what folks will think of next…
