It's easy to get caught up in platforms offering developers riches, or big mashup acquisitions.

iKnow, a social learning site launched last month by Japanese company Carego, have launched an API (our iKnow profile) to allow third parties to "add a little Learning and Linguistic magic to [their] applications, widgets and other mashups." iKnow allows users to take virtual English and Japanese language lessons (other languages are promised for the future) and guides and tracks their progress. Through the social component users can share their progress with friends, leave comments, keep journals, and compete for rankings.
