OK, this is kinda cool.
Enter a zip code anywhere in the United States:
It’s a mash-up that scraps data from The Fundrace Project, which features data on funding of political campaigns. With Follow the Dollars, you enter your/a zip code and then gives you a number of graphs indicating the amount of money being donated to the Republican party from that area, and donated to the Democrats. You can also view a map, with pens for places from which money has been donated.
I’m happy to see that my neighborhood is leaning in the “correct” direction.
A mashup is a web site that takes data from one or more other web sites, and then does something with the data to add value. My Hitchhikr site is a mashup, of sorts. It takes information from Technorati searches and from flickr, and creates pages listing blog postings and fickr images from registered conferences.
