MashupCamp is getting underway this morning at the Computer History Museum in Mountain View. About 300 mashers have gathered to geek out on the latest innovations in Web- based applications. As my colleague and MashupCamp head counselor David Berlind said, it's the "only event where mashup developers get to rub shoulders with API providers, mashup enablers – for example, The Eclipse Foundation(attending!) – and other mashup developers in a way that can only accelerate the evolution and pace of innovation in the just now-emerging mashup ecosystem." Plenty of junk food, blogging, podcasting, and mashing up.
