Change.org is a petition platform that enables users around the world to create positions to instigate change, and share that issue with other users to gain support. The Change API is offered as a free service and allows users to check petition targets, signatures, reasons for petitions, update petitions, create petitions, check signed petitions, and many other requests. The API uses REST calls and returns JSON. An API key is required for use.
HackSummit features a partnership with The Evolve Organisation focused on two problems for democracy. Kings of Code Hack Battle's brilliant hacks. Plus: Yodlee links incubators for fintech innovation, LinkedIn launches Sponsored Updates API, and 10 new APIs.
Think signing petitions is useless? There's probably an app for that. But Change.org proves the cynics wrong--every day. And now there's a Change.org API to rattle the powerful even further. The API is in beta, is free, and uses REST with JSON returned. The API covers a multitude of requests from creating petitions to checking signatures, from looking at the case for a petition to updating them.
