The big API day is finally here for the New York Times. After launching a series of interesting and useful APIs since last fall, covering everything from campaign finance to movie reviews, they've now released their most important API to date: their Article Search API. With this new web service, developers now have access to 2.8 million articles from the paper of record dating from 1981 through today (our Article Search profile). This API should be a terrific source for a wide range of mashups and third party applications.
BooRah, the restaurant search service, has announced the release of the BooRah API. The API augments the existing BooRah syndication platform, which is currently used by newspapers and other web sites that have a local focus. Their API is a standards-based web services platform, that also provides enhanced mobile platform capabilities. On mobile platforms, the API automatically integrates with Mozilla Geode and Skyhook Loki when they are present.
The Resfly API gives developers access to a integrating the ability to post jobs on many of the big job boards onto their platform. These range from Indeed (which apparently has eclipsed Monster) to Linkedin, from Craigslist to specialized ones in health care and other interests.
