Now that that NCAA College Basketball Tournament is underway, I thought I'd share a demo showing how a NCAA College Basketball fan could create his or her own "mashup" situational application to help decide what restaurant to go to after the basketball game. This demo utilizes the Lotus Mashups environment to combine data from StrikeIron's Men's College Basketball Web Service with data from Yahoo! Maps Service, Yahoo! Local Service, and AccuWeather. By combining these data sources into a mashup application, a fan of a college basketball team easily find restaurants and weather at the basketball arena site. By accessing other information such as local hotels and bars, this Lotus Mashups application can be modified to fit the specific interests of the user.
