I found myself on the Belfast Telegraph website yesterday looking at their rather nice crime map. A nice mashup but the ability to compare years visually would have really made it for me.

Still, whilst exploring I noticed a slideshow of the recent homecoming parade of The Royal Irish Regiment in Belfast. It’s shame that the slideshow was the the bog standard html click and link job (very old school next to a sexy mashup). An audio slideshow with soeme sound from the event would have been really evocative.

Especially when you have such fantastic shots like this one
