  1. Email me with your answers to the in-class exercises (questions 2 and 3).
  2. Given what you have seen so far, think about three problems that you might want to solve through mashups. For each problem area, give me at a brief paragraph telling me what the problem is, what you think you might do, and what obstacles you see right now for solving the problem. No need for detailed analysis yet. Be ready to present your ideas on Monday to the rest of the class. Find a mashup (listed on ProgrammableWeb or http://mashupawards.com/ or elsewhere) that serves as possible prior art to one of the problems you are listing in your writeup.
