Mashups using the same API (2588)
Data startup Factual has taken the largest step yet toward solving a problem of our modern, mobile, location-enabled lifestyle. With each restaurant-finding or check-in application, developers are building their own databases of places. Each has its own identifier and no connection to any other listing referencing the same place--a restaurant, park, office building or other landmark. Now Factual has added its "crosswalk" feature to the Factual Places API to address the problem and offer a solution that connects over 500 million web pages to specific venues. Included are the place pages from other directories of places, making Factual a Rosetta Stone for translating identifiers.
Location-sharing service Foursquare was down most of Monday, apparently due to a database issue. No Foursquare website or apps were available.

Yet, it's a good reminder to developers to plan for downtime and to providers to have communications in place to let others know about your service's issues when they arise.
The Microsoft Bing Fund has announced a series of hackathons intended to develop prototypes to enhance learning and independence for children and adults who live with Autism. The first Hackathon for Autism will commence on March 22nd and run through the 24th. Many individuals and families are affected by Autism on a daily basis; however, effectively diagnosing the condition and proper address seem to mitigate Autism's effect on daily life.
