Thank you all for your support. It seems that many people like LastTube (my little “One Day Mashup” experiment).
Some Buzz around LastTube:
- Flash/Flex and Yahoo Pipes: (this was the fist one 😉 ) “I’ve been exploring a bit into Yahoo Pipes and came across this Flex Based Mashup of last.fm and Youtube. Having seen this, I’m thinking there are all sorts of possibilities for this type of integration”
- Mashup litmus test for Web 2.0 start-ups: (It’s really nice when unknown people all around the world likes your work)
– “Take Lasttube for example. It’s a great web-based video player combining Last.fm and Youtube, glued together with Yahoo Pipes and Adobe Flex 2. It’s been whipped up by one lone programmer in Colombia of all places, who by his own account only needed one day to complete this project, including coding, testing, googling and lunch time.”
Janko leaves a couple of interesting questions on the table:
–“If mashup programmers can do stuff like this in no time – what does that mean for start-ups like Last.fm? For one thing, they really have to try harder”.
– “People have been questioning the commercial viability of mashups for quite some time now. Is it possible to make money, build businesses with someone else’s data feeds? Maybe that question was wrong from the beginning. Instead, we should have used mashups as a kind of litmus test for commercial web offerings and asked: Is there really a business model for a start-up if someone else could achieve the same thing with a quick mashup?“
- My “Last.fm meets YouTube” original pipe on the top of “Hot Pipes” in Yahoo Pipes during last weeks: (195 clones… and growing ;))
- Video Mashups Coming from All Directions : “Reading over continued promises of a Last.fm’s music video recommender, Janko notes more than one user-created alternative already exists.”
- You Got Your Last.fm in My You Tube: (Nice review with some suggestions for a next release) “The ability to access a filtered list of videos based on my listening behavior is a great feature. ..The overall UI is clean, simple and easy-to-use.”
- The Evil Robot and Mashups: (Evil Robot says: It seems that is easy to use Web Services with Adobe Flex) “Además, aparentemente es facil hacer que una informacion publicada en un sitio web pueda ser leida por un “applet” de flash publicado en otro sitio (public web services). Con el plugin de java era practicamente imposible hacerlo.“
- 10 Pipes for Your Tubes: “Here’s a list of the ten of the most useful video mashups to date: 1. Last.fm meets Youtube. This mashup searches Youtube for videos of the last ten tracks you played on Last.fm.”
