Ad tech company AudienceScience has launched an API that will help the advertisers using its demand-side platform more easily access ad inventory that can be purchased programmatically.
Big news for bookworms: HarperCollins, one of the "Big Six" New York publishers, has launched its OpenBook API Beta (not to be confused with the "Openbook" Facebook parody site), giving developers access to a wealth of data about their books and authors.
The AP Metadata Service that has internally powered the Associated Press' award-winning news operation is now available to third-party developers and publishers. The service is aimed at publishers looking to "add rich metadata to their content, enabling them to connect their customers with more relevant news and information." The AP delivers the Metadata service in a cloud-based offering via a set of APIs associated with the organizations news content.
