Every once in awhile we stumble across an API that is “watercooler talk” worthy. Often these APIs are revolutionary in the way that they affect how an industry operates, other times they are just really cool and waste a lot of our time. This past weeks addiction was the Yoda Speak API. This API, from the providers of the Yoda-Speak Generator, takes any text (after formatting it properly) and converts it into something you could imagine Yoda saying to Luke. Just think of the mashup possibilities! I am thinking Yoda-Speak + Twitter = awesome.
Sometimes we forget what the real purpose of all this fancy technology is. And what is that? To make our real lives easier. Mashups often help with that, allowing us to do such simple things as find a good beer, our favorite music artists, where the streetcars are, or where a park is.
There are many ways for websites to tap into online social networking services to allow their users to connect with each other. Now, for publishers who want to add social network functions to already existing websites, Yahoo! has announced their new Updates API, a web service that provides permission-based access to the actions of any user with a Yahoo! account. As part of Yahoo!'s Open Strategy (Y!OS), this API essentially allows developers to treat the Yahoo! network as a social networking platform (for more on Y!OS see our coverage of the initial Y!OS announcement and their YQL launch).
