Mashape at Data 2.0 Conference

The Data 2.0 Conference is a one-day conference on April 4, 2011, in San Francisco that answers the question: How can improved access to data impact your industry? The U.S. government is opening up its data; social networks are exposing their APIs; and data-as-a-service is a new and growing business model.  How can you use this data to better target new customers? What are new business models for your data? Data 2.0 tackles the big questions about the growing importance of data in business.
