API Spotlight: Dryad Data One, Persuasion and DatumBox

Of the many APIs we published this week, ten were highlighted on the blog by our team of writers. In this post, we’ll shine a spotlight on those ten, which included the Data Dryad DataOne API. The API gives developers programmatic access to Dryads repository of scientific publications.  This is just one step of Dryads goal of developing a joint data archiving policy (JDAP), allowing third parties, research institutions, and scientific publications to be shared. Their goal, at least right now, is to broaden the access of scientific data for all. To learn more about the Dryad API visit the Dryad site as well as the Dryad API blog post.

Most Popular APIs That Are No More

Many APIs eventually find their way to the ProgrammableWeb deadpool. They end up there for various reasons: no business model, replaced by a newer service or ceased being useful. The most popular of these dead APIs are predominantly from two big tech firms: Google and Yahoo. Search and mapping make up the bulk of the functionality behind these 12 popular--but no longer available--APIs.
