Welcome to Post Remix

Welcome to washingtonpost.com's Post Remix site, affectionately known as mashingtonpost.com.

This site has two goals:

  • To spotlight the work of outside Web developers who've made cool and interesting projects ("mashups") using Post content.
  • To provide information about washingtonpost.com's various data offerings (APIs and RSS feeds).

Why are we doing this? Because we want to foster innovation, and because we want to see your ideas about new ways of displaying news and information on the Web. Here are a few examples of what people have made with washingtonpost.com content:

These are the kinds of projects we'll be spotlighting on Post Remix.

If you've created something using washingtonpost.com content, or if you have an idea for somebody else to implement, let us know, and we'll include your project or idea here. Contact us by e-mailing Adrian Holovaty at adrian.holovaty (at) wpni.com.

reader: We're planning on writing a separate blog entry for each submission, and those entries will have screenshots when appropriate. For now, you can just click the links to see the sites in their full glory.

Seems like a cheap form of R&D for future information delivery.

Washington Post Mashup? I'm in. Time to throwdown and create a hundred new paradigms of Information per day. http://thesecurityblog.blogspot.com/ Much respect to WashingtonPost.com for letting journalists remix their content and drive traffic to the core. Welcome to Jamrock!

ShoePal, so you're against it? Or just irrational? News is both a service and a business, and either way, any R&D on info delivery should be expected.

The world map interface is excellent. Perhaps the Post could develop that more.

Perhaps the best way of fostering innovation is to reduce the hassle of visiting washingtonpost.com pages. Dump the clutter and ads. Google shows that simple and well-implemented ads can lead to tremendous profits.

I have already given up my daily viewing of WP's site because of these problems.

This is fantastic news (well, "new"s to me, since I just learned about it.

Good luck!
