the crowd

The age of the mashup is upon us, with software developers quickly adopting new techniques for custom-building Web applications. One sign of their enthusiasm was the crowd at the first-ever MashupCamp, held Monday at the Computer History Museum in San Jose, Calif. The grassroots movement has sparked interest at companies small and large: Among the attendees were folks from Microsoft, Google, Yahoo, Intel, Amazon.com and eBay.
