  • Blog Post: Print Labels With the Windows Live Contacts Control

    I was installing a new label printer at home a little while ago and noticed mention of a developer SDK in the readme docs.

    We've just rolled out an update to the Windows Live Contacts control, adding language support for German, Dutch, Italian, Spanish, Korean, and Chinese!

    Here's an interesting mashup: Michael Scherotter (the MindMap guy) has added address lookup and route finding to MindManager using Virtual Earth web services. He says the idea came to him at Mashup Camp , and took root in planning a family vacation. It's an interesting cross-pollination in part because...
  • Blog Post: Mashup Camp 2006 Wrapup

    Mashup Camp brought together some 400 people interested in developing web applications quickly by combining mutiple data sources or services in interesting ways.

Monday and Tuesday are pegged for Mashup University, with a more traditional conference session structure, and the unstructured (or just-in-time structured) mashup camp is on Wednesday. I'm told that last year's camp was nothing short of a web geek tech orgy, so these...
