Mashups using the same API (2579)
Something new sprang up in the Flickr App Garden last month: "This is my Cam!" by Chris Martin (the San Francisco-based hacker, not that guy from Coldplay). Inspired by music sharing site This Is My Jam and built during Photo Hack Day 3, "This is my Cam!" uses the Flickr API to catalog the different cameras that were used to capture a particular user's photos.
Chicago commuters just got a new resource that may lead to more helpful mashups: the Chicago Transit Authority Bus Tracker API. As recently announced, the API provides capability for developers to get bus routes and schedules, bus stop and arrival predictions, and more. Note that the API is not affiliated with the Chicago Transit Authority (CTA); rather, it was developed and is maintained by Harper Reed, who says the CTA has been "amazingly cool with all of this." In announcing the API, Harper wrote:
Radio stations are always looking for the "phrase that pays." That's passé. When it comes to local businesses on the web, it's praise that pays. Whether it's Yelp reviews, FourSquare check-ins, or customer feedback provided in Intuit's ongoing Love A Local Business competition.
