The Federal Register is touted as "The Daily Journal Of The United States Government". Its website, federalregister.gov, allows access to the documents published there, which include proposed rules, final rules, public notices, and Presidential actions. It's a pretty interesting and useful look into what the US Government is doing, and how it might affect your life. Amazingly enough, it has a full-featured API, which is a truly open source project, to allow access to the Federal Register within applications.
Urbanesia, the leading Indonesian lifestyle directory website, announced the launch of an open API. The open API enables third-party developers to incorporate Urbanesia's location data into third-party apps. The API allows developers to retrieve location data generally or in categories (e.g. restaurants, tourist spots, etc.). Selina Limman, Urbanesia CEO, commented: "We hope Urbanesia’s API can increase the developers’ creativity as they can [now] focus more on application development rather than data collection."

With the change comes tightened restrictions that spell the end for a handful of apps, including TweetDeck for Android, iOS, and Adobe Air along with SilverBird, and DestroyTwitter.
