Mashups using the same API (1255)
The favorite news aggregation site of programmers now has an API. But it didn't come directly from YCombinator, the company that runs the site. Instead, it was built by a community member who published it while working on a side project. The data is scraped from Hacker News and essentially has the blessing to operate as an unofficial API.
SXSW Interactive is probably best known now for its size. The event is spread through about half a dozen venues around downtown and greater Austin, Texas. And the parties that happen late into the night can be many Texas-sized blocks apart. It was a perfect place to track the activity--and inactivity--of a bunch of techies. Storing real-world data and making it accessible in the cloud is a growing trend, with a number of devices and APIs to facilitate it. Much of the focus so far has been on health, as it was at SXSW.
