Build your own mashup. Or something.

Mozilla Labs are building a non-technical mashup service called Ubiquity. The video below takes you through some very impressive applications of the tool which at this very early stage already does the following:

  • Lets you map and insert maps anywhere; translate on-page; digg and twitter; lookup and insert yelp review; get the weather; syntax highlight any code you find.
  • Convert to PDF, rich text or HTML.
  • Find and install new commands to extend your browser’s vocabulary through a simple subscription mechanism

Some obvious implications for journalists – I’m sure you can imagine more.
