Mashups using the same API (1)
Two of the biggest brands in local search are partnering and they're using open APIs to do it. Citysearch is including sponsored ads from YP.com (Yellow Pages) in its CityGrid ad network (our CityGrid API profile). Additionally, Citysearch reviews show up across the YP.com website.
I generally cover shopping related APIs, but recently hackathon events have piqued my interest. This past weekend I attended a two-day hackathon called “Reinventing Local”. This event was hosted at General Assembly, a local co-working space for startups in NYC, and well-known in the entrepreneur community. The theme was geared toward local businesses and was presented by American Express OPEN Forum, which I feel necessary to mention now has an API of their own allowing instant access to small business content. The event was sponsored by Mashery (also a ProgrammableWeb sponsor), ConstantContact and Meetup.
