Once the mouthpiece and aggregator of the blogosphere, Technorati lost its luster long ago. And now it's lost its API, too. The developer page promises a new API but also makes one thing clear: the old one is gone.
Yesterday's Mashup of the Day was a fun one for those who miss the good old days of command shells, goosh.org, "the unofficial google shell". Developer Stefan Grothkopp coded this on top of the Google Ajax Search API to give you a command shell for interacting with Google search queries.
Perhaps your most important online network of business contacts is now programmable. LinkedIn launched its API (our LinkedIn API profile), which allows developers to access a user's connections and anyone's profile data, in addition to several other features. Though some are saying "finally," it's clearly not too late for LinkedIn, who aims to be the professional networking platform.
