Mashups using the same API (1)
Less than two months ago, Merriam-Webster announced that some of its references would be available via an API. Now, competitor Cambridge University Press has followed suit with the Cambridge Dictionaries Online API.

Link shortening is no longer just something you do to fit into tweets or keep emails from wrapping. For many, especially those in marketing, it's also a great way to track clicks as their content gets spread across the web.
