Google Mashups

Google Maps

It’s interesting; Google Maps (maps.google.com) is generating a whole new type of social computing. Google, by developing an easy-to-use API for their mapping technology, created the world of Google Maps Mashups. I’m just starting to explore this area but at 1st glance it’s interesting.
HotOrNot – HotOrNot + Google Maps = Hot People by Zip Code. HotOrNot is a great example of a social computing application of the technology.
GMap Pedometer – record your running or walking distance. Not what I’d call a social computing application of the technology – but still cool.
Google Maps Mania – An unofficial Google Maps blog tracking the websites, ideas and tools being influenced by Google Maps.
