Single purpose API
GitHub is not just for code anymore. There are 84 APIs in the ProgrammableWeb directory that host their documentation on the site that makes code social. That count includes the official GitHub API, of course. What's especially interesting is that hosting docs on GitHub is not just for small startups, side projects or entities with an open source ethos. There are some big companies choosing to put forward information about their API right where someone might be looking for code.
