Race Mashup

The Race Mashup is an experiment with auto-searching various social media (twitter, delicious, youtube, google news & blogs, reddit etc.) by using search queries composed of key racial terms/words (e.g. racist, racism, immigration).

The display is generated from RSS feeds and via online services (yahoo pipes, dapper, topsy). There's much room for improvement:

  • types of search queries
  • more processing of query results (rather than simply raw listing)
  • greater reliability
  • speed up display of pages
