As you listen to the the show, Today’s Food For Thought Question is: How important is continued learning and training to your department? How often do you train?
So what is a “mash-up”?
A mashup, in web development, is a web page, or web application, that uses content from more than one source to create a single new service displayed in a single graphical interface (source: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mashup_(web_application_hybrid)
A Web mashup is a collection of services and functions which when combined create a unique useful Web application. (source: http://www.voices.yahoo.com/the-easy-way-create-web-mashup-4779400.html)

One app that Greg recommends to help track daily progress and goals is Habit Streak available on android via google play. I was unable to find Habit Streak for iPhone, but if you do a search in your app store for “Habit Streak” it should pull up some similar options you may find useful.
