AOL and TopCoder have announced the winners of the Truveo Developer Challenge. As I described in May, the contestants applied AOL's Truveo Video Search API to develop "a cool widget, gadget, mashup or web application." The $100,000 contest awarded $10,000 first place prizes to nine competitors.
The most significant recent development for Flickr has been the introduction of video into what used to be a photo-only service. The API has been updated with new features that should appeal to developers.
