Mashups using the same API (2564)
These days it might be hard to remember that the Yahoo Maps API was ever second fiddle to the Google Maps API. These days, it barely picks up its fiddle. And in less than two weeks, Yahoo will lift its once-mighty mapping API above its head and bang the fiddle repeatedly into the stage like Pete Townshend. The remnants, barely held together with strings and the crumpled instrument neck, will then go in some dumpster in Sunnyvale. It's okay, after all, because Nokia's Ovi Maps API will be a fine replacement. It's only the nostalgic, like me, who'll have any problem with seeing the Yahoo name disappear.
Foursquare, the leading location-based social tool, announced a major new initiative last week to expand its location database to include cross-references to corresponding venue listings from other services. As characterized in the announcement post on the company blog, the goal is to make Foursquare the missing "Rosetta Stone for location, allowing you to link information about a real-world place from one database to any other." Now it's not just about using Foursquare, but connecting it to other services.
