Carpools are a great option for the daily commute to the office, especially for those who want to save a substantial amount on fuel or just simply want to minimise their carbon footprint by using their vehicles less. Carpoolworld is an application that works to help commuters and other travellers find others in nearby locations with similar transportation needs, to make ride-sharing arrangements. Carpoolworld also provides the Carpoolworld API that gives developers the option to create applications using this data.
InfoChimps, those enterprising primates, have another incredibly interesting dataset to offer up to the world: 60,000+ UFO Sightings. And you thought that they didn’t exist! Now you’re going to have to apologize to the believers that you mocked because this dataset has come to set the record straight. Aliens exist and the evidence is the InfoChimps Datasets API, which makes searchable every documented sighting.
