Your next meal could be served up by BigOven's new API. The comprehensive service for those who like to cook provides more than 170,000 recipes in XML or JSON format (our BigOven API profile). From there, you can display it however you want, though there's a yet to be determined fee for commercial applications.
Web APIs and mashups are not only of interest to the developer community. There are also research activities that look at how to improve various aspects of API design as well as services' and mashups' implementation and deployment. If you are interested in a cutting-edge research that may influence the future of Web APIs, then you should look at series of workshops on Web APIs and Service Mashups.
