Mashups Could Be Life Savers

Most of the focus on mashups and Web 2.0 technologies has been on their business and entertainment value, but the most benefit could be derived from contributions to science.

At a Bio-IT conference last week, online techies gave scientists a lesson in how Web 2.0 could revolutionize the discovery process and speed responsiveness to pandemic threats, according to Bio-IT World.

The data mining, collaboration and Google Maps applications developed for online commerce can also be tweaked and marketed to the life sciences as a way to derive additional revenue.
