I had a customer ask me today about what SharePoint had in the way of Mashup support.  He had seen the new and cool IBM Mashup Center, and (had forgotten?) couldn’t remember how SharePoint would fit into this concept of mashup applications. 

I put together a quick list of resources (Thanks, Live Search!) about Enterprise Mashups and technologies available on the SharePoint platform.

An OBA Community site for the OBA Composition Toolkit…..

I met with the folks from Aivea a couple of weeks ago and got a quick demo of the OBA Community site that they have built.  You can view Aivea’s site dedicated to the OBA Composition Toolkit at (http://oct.aivea.com/pages/default.aspx).  They have an OBA community blog list at (http://oct.aivea.com/pages/Community.aspx).
