Another Mashup

Its Sunday afternoon, and I have a few choices.
  • Watch my fantasy football team get pummeled.
  • Do homework.
  • Make another mashup
This is the Seattle Special mashup. Its 2 local startup companies.
    - This is for news and blogs. You read stories that interest you, and it personalizes the content for you automatically. Its pretty sweet technology.
  • - I've written about
    before (and you can see their widget on the right hand side of my
    blog). A great system for sharing information with your friends. They call it "Social Discovery."

So what does this littlemashup do? It takes your Top 25 tags from bluedot, and uses Findory to show blog posts that are related to that tag. There is definitely some room for improvement, but I just kind of wanted to get this pushed
out of the door, since I have a feeling I'm going to be the only one using it. Of course, feel free to email me or comment here with suggested improvements.

Without further ado, here is BDindory. Wait, that name is lame. Maybe I should call it Findotry. Whatever. Here is Bluedot+Findory.

Right now, this only works in Firefox. I don't know Javascript well enough to be able to diagnose and fix the problem. I've tested it in Internet Explorer, and it doesn't work. I don't know about Opera or other browsers. You can report your findings here.

Adam, I can't get this to work. I put in my username and nothing happens, it just says found 25 of 0 results...

Aahhh, now I see, the top field is for username and the bottom one os for password. See how smart I am? Seriously, it might be worth labelling each of those boxes separately as username and password. Whenever you need lowest common denominator testing, that's me...

This is really cool!
