What Mashup Site Would You Love?

There's no doubt about it mashup sites provide a unique and pleasurable website experience by combining services of two sites into one. For example, Flickrvision is a mashup site that displays the pictures people across the world are posting on Flickr on a map, while MapsKrieg.com combines Google Maps and the housing listings on Craigslist.org.

This week, Wired Magazine's Alt Text blog put out a ploy for more innovative mashup sites that would help trim our bookmark menus by combining popular domains. The list includes:

  • Netflickr - Subscribe to this service and they'll mail you three photos of someone's lame party. When you're done looking at one, mail it back and they'll send you a picture of some random bridge somewhere.
  • Figg - This community blog throws Fark and Digg together, insuring that that 95 percent of all frat boys with laptops will be members.
  • Craigsbitz - Thanks to this combination of Craigslist and Orbitz, you can browse the voluminous listings for all sorts of jobs, from blow to temp, then immediately book a flight and a hotel room to the city where the offer is being made.
  • WiredSpace - Wired and MySpace combine to form a massive online community dedicated to discussing the latest in tech news as well as blaring MP3s at you.

I'm partial to the Netflickr and Craigsbitz ideas but I'd probably get sucked into the vortex of WiredSpace if it existed.
