Exclusive first look at new Zude mashup capabilities

Zude invited me into the Web 2.0 Expo hall to see some new stuff that isn’t released yet. Damn, Zude is one of those things that you just need to keep playing with to get. They are letting you drag-and-drop all sorts of stuff from all sorts of places on the Web.

Think about building a mashup between Twitter, Facebook, Upcoming, Yelp, and other social networks. Now you’re starting to understand a little bit about how disruptive these guys are trying to be.

Of course, if you don’t think Zude is all that cool, I made a few videos at the Web 2.0 Expo yesterday. Here they are:

TripSay, a new site for vacationers.
My former boss, Lenn Pryor, who now is a VP at Nokia tells me about Nokia’s latest.
Moo’s CEO shows me the latest from the cool business card and printing people.
I get a neat tour of Blist, a cool Web-hosted database.
Amy Shuen, business school professor, talks to me about her new book on Web 2.0 strategy.
I get a look at Zloop, a new company that’s making a service for us to work together around projects. Part I, Part II/Demo.
Morfik showed me their new Web development tool, which builds rich internet applications.
DotHomes tells me about new real estate search engine.

After Hours at Web 2.0 Expo

Every time I walked into the Expo Hall yesterday I got pitched by PR people and couldn’t even get much passed the front door. So, when I got a chance, thanks to Zude, to sneak in after hours I couldn’t resist. What’s fun was Jeremy Mazner, PM on Microsoft’s Live Mesh team was still working there and we stopped to find out more about Microsoft Live Mesh. Of course, this is one time I can get a photo of the Google booth without being told off.
