Abstract

A method and system for creating ExtremeCasting applications is disclosed. With the advent of World Wide Web (WWW), people nowadays are willing to perform ‘ExtremeCasting’ i.e., to voluntarily disclose various categories of private data over the WWW that may be freely accessible by others. This private data may be disclosed through various channels, such as photo, video, encyclopedia, tweets, blogs, forums and social networking among others. The method and system provide a framework for building applications of ExtremeCasting utilizing the private data once the private data becomes available. The framework thus provides building blocks that utilize the private data to create interesting applications of ExtremeCasting as a ‘one-stop-shop’ where a particular category of private data from people will be made available. In addition, different applications of ExtremeCasting thus build may share many common components and a large number of such applications may be created with modularized components.
