[...] John Musser has compiled some stats on the mashups of 2006, with 1,404 mashups clocking in at year&#8217;s end. The number one mashup API of the year? Google Maps, with 51 percent of all APIs. Yahoo&#8217;s Flickr API took second place with 10%, while Amazon&#8217;s API ranked third at 8%, followed by (Google) YouTube mashups in fourth with 4%.
