I'vRead is a service for keeping track of what books you've read. Seems simple, but it can be rather useful for those of us obsessed with reading like myself. Its web site offers the service for free, and using it is already pretty simple. There isn't even another account to register for. All a user needs to do is add a specific tag, @ivread, to a Twitter post mentioning the book. It allows for some basic searches of the data on their website, but the I'vRead API is where the service really shines.
Geeklist offers developers an online haven to present their work, connect with other developers, and gain credit for achievements. Geeklist's lean staff proudly states that Geeklist was "[b]uilt by developers, for developers... we make geeks lives better every day." The API allows developers to create their own applications and services and retrieve any needed data from the Geeklist database. The API has remained in private beta since the Geeklist's original launch, but will open to the public with a 48-hour hackathon from November 30 - December 3.
