Middle East Crisis Map Mashup by The Truth Laid Bear

Truth Laid Bear A nice example of a mashup combining different sources of information available on the web is The Truth Laid Bear’s Middle East Crisis Map. While it doesn’t appear to work in Apple’s Safari browser (try Firefox instead), otherwise the map is a facinating way to get a closer look at news from bloggers and regional and local papers exploring events in the middle east. Each city marked on the map can be clicked on to reveal news “geo-coded” to that locality, coming either from blogs or news outlets. You can also use the map to zoom in and take a closer look at the topography of a given area or switch the layout to focus primarily on news.
