I am a fan of mashups, but have been disappointed. I had my undergrad students use IBM mashups recently but the site gave us a lot of problems. It was very slow and virtually impossible to even create an account.
Also, the feed mashup site would switch languages to french, German, etc. at will (some kind of humor I guess!). Did complain about it on the forum but there was no response.
Finally, the sharing is problematic. It is not clear to me why it is not possible to share a mashup I make with the public. Why is it that only people I authorize (and who have mashup accounts) can see my mashup.
I have other gripes too...
