Decibel pitches itself as a leader in the music metadata space by citing a deeper and more accurate dataset than its competitors. The slick video (embedded below) on its site is quite convincing. Decibel claims to collect music metadata from all sources all over the world, including record labels and users, check it for accuracy, and compile it into the database. It’s ambitions are set high with the goal of creating an industry standard in music metadata, and why not? Someone’s got to do it!
Technology blogger Mohamed Marwen Meddah wrote an interesting post recently on his StartUpArabia site: "The Importance of Having An API for Arab Startups". Mohamed notes that, thus far, relatively few Arab online startups have opened up their platforms through APIs. However, he believes that providing an API is crucial for Arab online services.
Innovation in web service APIs is not always technical, sometimes it's about money. Such is the case with Yahoo's announcement that later this year they will begin charging for usage of BOSS (Build your Own Search Service), their search web service for developers. Given that search revenue is typically ad-driven, and that advertising doesn't typically mesh with APIs, this has meant that search APIs have been one of the most challenging classes of APIs for providers to monetize. So it's notable to see how Yahoo has chosen to tackle this: via a 'utility' pricing model, somewhat akin to how infrastructure services like Amazon Web Services charge by usage.
