Mashups for Granny?

Seriously, look, I love this. :) The image was created by psd and I found the story through PHILANTHROPIY 2173.

Don't know what a mashup is? I don't either, but I know they are sweet, due primarily to my buddy B-Money. He says it's cool, then I will probably agree. Most of the time. :)

What do you think of the granny mashups? Would granny use it? Do they already? Sorta? Granny is using Facebook to talk to the grandchildren, after all.

I like mashup music, like http://www.bootieusa.com/ and
http://www.mashuptown.com/

Generally, when it comes to tools on the internet, I find it useful to assign merit based on what it does, not its category. If someone mashes some data services together and makes something neat, that one thing is neat, but does not necessarily lend credence to similar efforts.

OTOH, I believe that data services will become monolithic, faster, and ubiquitous (if they are not already), in line with the UNIX Philosophy http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Unix_philosophy . This is just another step in the "Internet as an operating system" movement that will eventually make mashups seem as boring as Linux package dependence.

Thanks for the shout-out.
