A trend is starting to emerge: Advanced technologies are being made available first as cloud services that organizations can invoke easily via an API, rather than having to figure out how to deploy and master themselves. The latest example of that trend is a cloud service from AlchemyAPI that takes advantage of machine learning and computer vision technologies to allow publishers and providers of ad networks to more easily monetize content.
Another day, another API... Keeping on top of all the APIs that have been made public to support the plethora of web services that are available these days can be a full time job. Yahoo thought so too, and so they created the Yahoo Query Language (YQL), which provides access to hundreds of web services with a single SQL like syntax. And now YQL supports Google Buzz.
