Automated Spotify Playlists #music

leave a comment »

To celebrate the release of Spotify in the US I'll highlight 3 fun Spotify mashups which can be used to create playlists for Spotify.

BBCify mashes up radio listings from the BBC with Spotify to create playlists of shows, it also creates a central playlist which is updated daily with the music from the shows.

Lastify connects to last.fm and uses information from last.fm's recommendations and creates a personalised playlists with recommended artists in Spotify.

The last Spotify mashup is biblify, which is again a playlist generator for Spotify. biblify using the latest album reviews from various sources, including The Guardian, NME, Pitchfork, Uncut, Drowned In Sound, The Fly and the BBC.

Have fun listening to music!

Global Disease Mashup #mashup

with one comment

I found a nice Mash-Up which scraps news sites and populates a Google Map with the data gathered from these articles. Sadly they don’t populate it too well, where the article says The Hague they just have a pointer in the centre of the country. It’s very nice for a beta.

Google Maps Trip Resolver

leave a comment »

I love mashups and saw this one that I would like to share with you: Google Maps Fastest Roundtrip Solver. It not just populates the map, but produces an instruction for getting there with distance data. Now if only it produced the most eco-friendly trip.

Google & Non-Google Maps Mashups

leave a comment »

Haven’t written for sometime, that’s because this blog is usually for technical items.

I’ve been following Lifehacker while now and found a cool article on non-Google Maps Technophilia: Top ten (non-Google) map innovations. I also discovered a new term for a web application hybrid, a mashup. Mappr! is an example of a image/map mashup.

And see how Google Maps NYC subway station smells, wonderful.

To see other examples of mashups try The Open Directory for Mashups & Web 2.0 APIs
