Single purpose API
What if you wanted to tackle a really big issue. How about freeing the 27 million people caught in "modern day slavery" through human trafficking (statistic from Wikipedia). Would you: A) Figure out the answer and build the biggest organization you could to solve the problem by yourself, or, B) Work with other organizations already working on this issue because cooperation is essential to solving this, or C) Build an API so the smart people who chose B could have an even bigger impact? Freedom Registry, founded by a group called Chad Dai (which stands for "joining hands" in Khmer) is already doing B, has just chosen C. They do just what their name says, provide a registry of organizations working on the issue. The Freedom Registry REST API allows developers to retrieve data from the registry.
This week we had 55 new APIs added to our directory and our staff picked their favorites. Among them include an anti-human trafficking registry, semantic analysis API and a digital content management service. Read below for more information on each.
