In technology, a "mashup" is a web application that combines data from more than one source into a single integrated tool, thereby creating a new and distinct web service that was not originally provided by either source. Content used in mashups is typically sourced from a third party via a public interface or API; other methods of sourcing content for mashups include web feeds (e.g., RSS / really simple syndication), web services and screen-scraping.
