Mashups using the same API (1)
WS-REST.org has announced that it will host the fifth edition of the International Workshop on Web APIs and RESTful Design at the 23rd International World Wide Web Conference this April in Seoul, South Korea. The first workshop was held in 2010. As APIs have continued to drive innovation in the connected world, the workshop has continued to refine its scope of study, broaden its expectations and increase interest. As the organizers begin to develop this years agenda, PW caught up with Carlos Pedrinaci, a research fellow at The Open University, UK, and one of the event organizers.
Scientific journals are providing greater access to published research by releasing new APIs. Cambridge Journals Online API and Public Library of Science Article Level Metrics API have both been released in the past several weeks.

What makes a trip to a restaurant a great experience is not just the fact that they serve delicious food and good wine, but it has a lot to do with the atmosphere and overall 'vibe' of the place. Of course, a 'good vibe' means different things to different people (some like it chilled and some like it loud and bustling), so imagine how cool it would be to be able to browse through dining options based on the exact atmosphere you're looking for. That's what Hoppit is all about; finding restaurants by atmosphere. Hoppit's API provides access to this handy functionality.
