Some of the newer or less frequently seen APIs include EEA Discomap, Face.com and Wine.com. The most often used APIs this week are Facebook, Twitter and Wine.com. And the most commonly used types of APIs were Mapping (3 APIs, 3 mashups), Social (3 APIs, 7 mashups) and Music (2 APIs, 2 mashups). The list below shows which APIs were used by which mashups:

If you have API news, or are interested in writing for ProgrammableWeb, please contact editor@programmableweb.com Though I'm a fan of anything API-related, my particular interest is in mapping. I've published a how-to book, Map Scripting 101, to get anyone started making maps on websites. In a not-so-distant past life I wrote for Wired and Webmonkey.
