My interview with Jon Udell: "Working with Data Sources"

I'm pleased to announce that my first book interview is now online: Working with Data Sources, part of Jon Udell's Interviews With Innovators. I was excited and a bit nervous talking to Jon over the phone, someone whose work I've admired for years. Undoubtedly, I was pleased with his take on my book:

The book is chock full of good examples. Even if you’re an experienced developer of mashups that involve Flickr,, Eventful, and the various mapping services, you’ll learn helpful strategies for using these services individually and in combination.

It turned out that we didn't end up talking that much about my book. The abstract of the interview captures how we did spend our time: "On this edition of Interviews with Innovators, host Jon Udell asks Yee about teaching students how to work with existing data sources, and on ways to expand the supply of available sources."

Take a listen to the interview — there's a lot of food for thought, especially because Jon provided tons of insight into the subject. I'll follow up tomorrow with my reflections on the interview, what I said, what Jon said, what I meant to say, and what there is to say with more time to ponder.
