New APIs: Pings, Wikis, and Twitters

While the pace of new APIs over the past three weeks wasn't up the nearly one per day rate the month before, there have been 26 added over the past 30 days. Included are APIs from big established providers and small startups. Below are a few of note with more coverage coming in the next few days:

  • Pingdom: Besides getting you urgent alerts if your website is down or otherwise at risk, the Pingdom web site monitoring service offers this API that lets you dig directly into that monitoring data for detailed status and analysis.
  • WikiMatrix: If you are comparing wiki software you can use this API to pull data from their DB of wiki product information
  • Twitter: An API for "the global community of friends and strangers answering one simple question: What are you doing?"

Total APIs listed here now at 348.
