The New York Times is giving developers access to data that is even more real-time from its New York Times Campaign Finance API. Google added an API console for its Google Shopping Content API to provide easy access to error codes. Plus: a German hackathon with a twist, Google App Engine updates and 7 new APIs.

In February the Times introduced the Newswire API, which "provides an up-to-the-minute stream of published items" from the paper of record, and the New York State Legislature API for tracking the political maneuverings in Albany.
The New York Times made news earlier this year through its release of several APIs (our Campaign Finance API Profile and our Movie Reviews API Profile). There's been promise of more APIs to come, and the latest prototype created by The New York Times gives a preview of what is to come.
