Institutional Web Management Workshop 2009
Parallel Session: Mashups Round the Edges
- A8: "Mashups Round the Edges - What Your Users Will Do Even if You Don't make it Easy For Them"
- Mike Ellis, Eduserv and Tony Hirst, Open University
In this potentially rather dangerous workshop, we'll show you some of the tricks and tools that your users - and the geek public at large - can use to scrape content and data from your websites and make use of it as they will. The moral? Make it easy for them... then at least they take away valid information and give you a chance to track where it's being used.
Demos will include - RSS 101, Yahoo Pipes 101, Screenscraping 101
