Idealog—in the ideas business

Adrian Holovaty on the mashup

I talked with Adrian Holovaty, the co-creator of the Django web development framework and a series of groundbreaking web mashups. Our quiet spot was overrun a few seconds after we started but I think the message gets through.

Some of the sites we discuss include the Washington Post’s Faces of the Fallen, his new startup EveryBlock.com and Chicago Crime, which now redirects to a page at EveryBlock.
