Skype API Mashup Contest

SkypeSkype has just announced a developer contest….that could land you in Prague (via Programmable Web)

  • The competition runs from 22nd June to 31st August 2007
  • The winner will be given air travel to the Skype developer and beta tester days in Prague, Sept 12-13
  • Third party reviews of all entries are prohibited until 9:00 a.m. GMT, Friday, Sept. 14, 2007
  • All top 10 runner-ups will get promoted and published by Skype
  • Winners will be judged on Skypeness (what is Skype centric about it), usability, coolness, usefulness, stability and a flair or weird factor.

I love to see companies working with their usergroups. And also I can’t wait to see what mashups are created.

Generation 1 Transformers on Ebay

This song is a little folky… but I like the cartoon. It made me smile.

I found it here: – a video mashup that I am not yet sold on, but worth a look. Chime aggregates videos from,, DailyMotion, Google Videos, Kewego, MetaCafe, MySpace,, and YouTube. (via Programmable Web)

It is kind of cool in that it has a playlist based on your category and it seems like a pretty interesting continual feed of content. I was in the indie music category and having a good time. It also contained “She Don’t Use Jelly” by the Flaming Lips. Have fun:

Holy Crap… Update… This video rawks. It is Pinback’s song “Fortress”:

Bush Out Takes

I usually don’t get too political… and I am 100% sure I would make an ass of myself in his shoes… but this video mashup of real Bush footage is just plain funny.
