The Internet thrives on a variety of content--from cat pictures to blog posts--and a multitude of access methods, from APIs to telegrams. But none of it would exist without electricity powering all those clients, servers, and the network equipment in between. Now, the U.S. Energy Information Administration (EIA) has released an API detailing how and where American electric power is generated, sold, and used.
Now you can use an API to find out once and for all whether you are among the living. The U.S. Social Security Administration maintains a "death index" to prevent fraud. CDYNE Corporation subscribes to the updates and has opened the index up with a fee-based API (details at our Death Index API profile).
