Have you ever heard of a Chief Science Officer? I recently spoke to Kontagent’s CSO and was excited to learn that Kontagent’s world of big data processing is one of the few places in the world in which academic exercise is directly applicable to industry. Kontagent is a user analytics platform which can easily be integrated into any web site or mobile app. The ease of integration results from the decision to provide a RESTful Kontagent API.
For as long as people have been grabbing a board and trying to catch some waves, attempting to predict surf quality has been considered an art. Spitcast is trying to turn the art of prediction into the science of surf. Jack Mullis, the founder and developer of Spitcast, has been surfing for years. In 2005 he decided to combine his knowledge of surfing with his degree in Engineering Physics and create a unique algorithm that can predict future surf conditions by using Java and MySQL to cross reference NOAA regional weather data with observations at specific surf spots. This process has been shown to produce predictions accurate to 1 foot standard deviation. With the Spitcast API, this data can be transformed into custom applications.
Recently, blogging service Posterous thought it would try and help ease the burden of moving from other places on the web to its blogging platform by developing a bunch of migration tools. All of these tools were built on other services' open APIs and designed to go in, grab your content, and republish it through Posterous maintaining as much metadata as possible. Things were fine until photo-hosting service Twitpic caught wind and cut of Posterous' API access.
