Stack Overflow, the very successful question and answer site for programmers, have now released their own API into public beta. The API actually works with all of the Stack Exchange sites, including serverfault.com and superuser.com, with more sites possibly launching in the future. The API is supported by the site http://stackapps.com.
mBLAST has enhanced its mPACT API product in an attempt to target the academic community. Virtual-Strategy.com tells us that the new feature, titled mPACT API PhD, "Is designed to provide discovery, scoring and analytics across traditional and social media for academic administrators and faculty alike, providing solutions to assist in faculty recruitment and assessment, in development and in alumni engagement." The enhancement allows academic institutions to search for scholarly material presented by academics in non-traditional venues (e.g. blogs, social media, etc.).
Another day, another API... Keeping on top of all the APIs that have been made public to support the plethora of web services that are available these days can be a full time job. Yahoo thought so too, and so they created the Yahoo Query Language (YQL), which provides access to hundreds of web services with a single SQL like syntax. And now YQL supports Google Buzz.
