Mashups using the same API (1)
Developers are forever being asked for data from Web applications to either resolve a DevOps issue or better inform a business decision. Gathering all that data in a way that makes sense to both the developer and the people that need to act on that information has always been problematic. Looking to take that issue head on, New Relic this week launched the public beta of New Relic Insights, a real-time analytics tool that developers can invoke within the context of the New Relic application performance management (APM) service.
For several years millions have shared the places they've been using the Where I've Been website and Facebook application. The site also has an API (our Where I've Been API profile), which allows for much of the same functionality, such as searching countries, marking it visited and adding content such as a story or photo.
With data being both more plentiful and accessible than ever, tools that help users quickly make sense of it become increasingly valuable. As expected, much of the data being used comes from social sites. We come across mashups that access this data and provide interesting ways of looking at it from influence circles, tweet impacts and search results. Here is a look at four that caught our attention.
