The New York Times has been gaining momentum in opening up its vast stores of information via APIs such as the TimesPeople, Article Search, and Real Estate APIs and mashups such as Represent (our coverage on Represent). Now the media giant has taken another step forward by implementing a new service that leverages its Newswire API (our Newswire API Profile).
Every now and then a sharp developer uncovers a clue that leads to discovery of an undocumented, but quite real, web API. A case in point is the folks over at SEO services company Index Content, who noted in their blog yesterday that the popular social news web site Reddit has an API. But don't go looking for any documentation, because it doesn't look like there is any, at least not yet (for reference we've created a Reddit API summary in our directory and will update it if/when this becomes an officially supported API).
