Social Computing

Thanks to some interesting comments on Paul's blog about social computing. I have been looking into the world of Mashup, and Wikis. Yes, I am sure you have all heard of Wikipedia, but creating your own Mashup Wiki, well that was a new one for me. It transpires that those clever people at IBM have been creating a drag and drop interface to use widgets(?) that allow you to create your own Wiki mash-up for any reason. Mash together your own customer database, Google maps , BBC news , and weather to create a complete synchronised up to date picture of the area where one of your customers may be operating. This hand waving IBM guy tells it how it is.
