When Google Maps was introduced in early 2005, the world took notice of the uniquely new capabilities it offered. However, more significantly, a group of shrewd developers quickly understood what new opportunities the Maps API opened up to them and started to create Maps mashups showing, for example, the locations of gas stations offering the lowest prices around your zip code. Today, there are thousands of such mashups.
Wouldn't it be great if we could create mashups with other Google services?
