Mashups using the same API (3028)
Gowalla, the location-based social network, is beginning to establish itself as the most generously interoperable of its check-in–offering peers. At a SWSX panel last week about integrated location data, Gowalla co-founder and CTO Scott Raymond indicated that developers would soon even be able to download data en masse from Gowalla for their own manipulation and analysis. When asked by the moderator, Programmable Web Executive Editor Adam DuVander, "Can I download Gowalla's data," Raymond responded that providing the option was "definitely on the roadmap."
The prevalence of mashups on the web is probably thanks to the Google Maps API and other mapping APIs. It remains the most popular type of mashup, more than three times the second-most, photos. The ubiquity means maybe map mashups have lost some of their luster.
Facebook is taking another big reach toward location sharing with its latest update to its Places API. When the platform launched in August, we wrote that it was "read only for now." Now all developers can, with users' permission, share their locations on Facebook. And, perhaps more exciting, Facebook has opened up its venue database to help out.
