Of the many APIs we published this week, twelve were highlighted on the blog by our team of writers. In this post, we’ll shine a spotlight on those twelve, which included Google's many newly released APIs. Included in Googles recent releases are the Content Experiments, Cloud SQL API, CalDAV, and the CardDAV APIs. To give a background on each, the CalDAV API allows developers to manage their calendar, the CardDAV to manage contacts, the Content Experiments allowing for Google Analytics to be used for A/B testing, and finally the Cloud SQL API to perform certain tasks for MySQL database. To learn more about these APIs, visit the Google page as well as the Google API blog post.
What happens when Joe Investor ("sophisticated" or otherwise) backs too many ventures that go bust that take him down with them? Now that crowdfunding is legal thanks to the JOBS Act passed in 2012, scenarios like this and worse have the potential of becoming much more frequent. But just because it's legal doesn't mean it's free of regulation. In fact, the regulations that are still being hammered out promise to be fierce. How will a crowd sourcing investment site, or an enterprise looking for financing on one of those sites, keep track of it all? Actually, that may not even be possible--unless the funding portal uses a service like the Crowdbouncer API.
