Our mission

Free Government Information (FGI) is a place for initiating dialogue and building consensus among the various players (libraries, government agencies, non-profit organizations, researchers, journalists, etc.) who have a stake in the preservation of and perpetual free access to government information. FGI promotes free government information through collaboration, education, advocacy and research.

Lunchtime Listens: Creating Remixes, er mashups

What we at FGI like to call remixes, others call mashups.

How does one take a little of this, a little of that and create something new, interesting, and hopefully compelling or at least useful?

For a gentle introduction to the process, check out Darlene Fichter’s SirsiDynix Institute’s presentation Mashups : A Little Bit of This, A Little Bit of That. At roughly 50 minutes, this would fit into a lunchtime. You’ll definitely want her slides as you listen. Or maybe you could watch her presentation.

Either way, check out the ProgrammableWeb and our remixes page for examples of things that can be done once you mix/mash things together!
