Online diagramming service Creately opened its Creately API to the public this month, and with some surprisingly innovative features. While providing obvious features to make its service available to outside developers, and several "above and beyond" features, such as easy embedding of diagrams, Creately has done something fairly unique: open up its own, web-based file format for other developers to use.
A recent PC World article titled "As Facebook Service Goes, So Goes the Internet" scratched the surface of some inherent dangers of our increasingly interconnected Internet. By its very nature, the current generation of the internet is interconnected: "Web 2.0 is a loosely defined intersection of web application features that facilitate participatory information sharing, interoperability, user-centered design, and collaboration on the World Wide Web." The PC World article traced some problems that mere inclusion of a simple sharing interface can cause. When Facebook suffered a bad day, the top twenty news sites experienced load times of 12.5 seconds (compared to the usual 5-7 seconds). Top retail sites load times slowed to 5.7 seconds from the typical 2.2. seconds. All of this dragging because of a poorly performing "Like" button at a Facebook data center? This could have much larger implications for companies that are inherently reliant on data from external sources (e.g. websites pulling third-party data via APIs).
Facebook is a great tool for being able to go back and reminisce of good times with your friends and everything else that's happened in your life. Pretty cool stuff, that Facebook.
