Airbnb's CEO, Brian Chesky, hinted that Airbnb may soon open an API for third party integration. Chesky envisions the company shifting from a marketplace to a travel platform upon which third parties can plug into. While no specifics were given, Chesky suggested that lack of an API is a hole.
Let's talk languages: in this case, not computer programming languages, but human languages. According to the 2009 edition of the SIL International publication Ethnologue: Languages of the World, the estimated 328 million English speakers in the world are dwarfed by the 1.2 billion people who speak Chinese as a first language. And though English has become the lingua franca of many tech industries, users still prefer to interact with products and services in their native tongue. No doubt this was one of the factors which led FlightStats, Portland-based provider of global flight tracking and airport information, to start offering its FlightStats API data in languages other than English.
