the first day of the Web 2.0 Conference on NewsForge.
"Mashups combine other people's work into a new... something. Take clips from videos published on Ourmedia, add music from wherever, and you have a mashup. Think "sampling" -- and remember that lots of DJs and rappers have been sued big-time for using snippets of other people's copyrighted work without authorization. What about all those sites that combine Google Maps with some other cool idea to create something like a crime hotspot map? Or one that shows subway routes and slowdowns? Or whatever? These are all mashups, and this sort of thing seem to be a big deal at Web 2.0.
