When it comes to interacting with the over 800 social APIs, it's not just about your friend's data. It's also about your own data. The Personal Data Revolution is about making that data available to you, which is where the APIs come in.

In the above video from ProgrammableWeb's track on social APIs at DataWeek in September, you can see three talented developers discuss the ins and outs of the personal data revolution. Can developers help make the quantified self a common practice?

The panel includes John Sheehan of IFTTT, Jesse Emery of YourTrove and Beau Gunderson of Singly.
