Mashups using the same API (1)
It's no secret that the Google Maps API is incredibly popular. Our directory lists over 2,100 Google Maps mashups, but that's obviously just a subset of all the sites powered by the mapping platform. And now we know how many sites that is. According to Google Developer Advocate Mano Marks, there are 350,000 websites incorporating Google Maps. And, of course, Google now has many other geographic APIs.
I generally cover shopping related APIs, but recently hackathon events have piqued my interest. This past weekend I attended a two-day hackathon called “Reinventing Local”. This event was hosted at General Assembly, a local co-working space for startups in NYC, and well-known in the entrepreneur community. The theme was geared toward local businesses and was presented by American Express OPEN Forum, which I feel necessary to mention now has an API of their own allowing instant access to small business content. The event was sponsored by Mashery (also a ProgrammableWeb sponsor), ConstantContact and Meetup.
