I generally cover shopping related APIs, but recently hackathon events have piqued my interest. This past weekend I attended a two-day hackathon called “Reinventing Local”. This event was hosted at General Assembly, a local co-working space for startups in NYC, and well-known in the entrepreneur community. The theme was geared toward local businesses and was presented by American Express OPEN Forum, which I feel necessary to mention now has an API of their own allowing instant access to small business content. The event was sponsored by Mashery (also a ProgrammableWeb sponsor), ConstantContact and Meetup.
The daily deal space is hot, and has been for some time now. In the past year 23 million Americans have purchased a daily deal or group coupon according to a survey conducted for the American Institute of CPAs by Harris Interactive (source). Not to mention Freelance websites, such as Freelancer and Elance, have been flooded with thousands of "Groupon clone", "daily deal site" and related job postings - a general sign that many more businesses are still trying to get in.
