Web developers did it to bring together multiple sources onto one internet page. Musicians and DJs followed by sampling songs from different genres to create new music. Now everyone is doing it: at work, on the weekends, in business. It's time for professionals and businesses to cash in on the mash up.
The days of being defined by a single job title are vanishing. The futu

This book has a great "go-get-'em" attitude, but it falls a bit thin on real content.

I had high hopes for this book, but it fell a little short. Lots of name dropping used to bring their mash-up, plural living thoughts into the pages, but really light on the actual implementation.

This book was exactly what I was hoping it was: to the point, full of good advice and inspiring ideas for a gal who has no idea what post-graduation will look like. Mash Up! assured me that I should enjoy the next year of school left -- thankful that I have a plan for at least this year and worry more about my goals than creating a perfect plan (referred to as an "unplan").

This is great for people who still need convincing that a "project" mindset won't work for them. The book employs good use of interviews of mashers. For people who are already doing it, the book provides the reader with a pretty good entry-level framework on how to go about the management of all these mash-ups.

Excellent description of the way the work world is today. All ages could benefit from this book's ideas especially those considering a job or career change.

Really enjoyed reading the book and success stories of people who went plural from singular.

“A friend’s 14-year-old niece was asked by her teacher what she wanted to be when she finished school. The teacher asked her to think hard about it and then get back to him with an answer. She didn’t know what to say to her teacher. A friend, on hearing the girl’s predicament, said: ‘Tell your teacher that, perhaps, the thing you want to be when you leave school hasn’t been invented yet.” 0 likes
