THE OPEN DATA MOVEMENT
THE EVOLUTION OF APIs
Increasingly, companies are making their data and inner workings
publicly available through the release of APIs, which are used by
developers in building new tools—like TweetDeck, based on Twitter’s
API, Since 2005, more than 3,700 APIs have been launched.

WHAT IS AN API?
An application programming interface is a set of instructions that allows software programs to interact with each other. Programmable Web tracks APIs and "mashups" (new combinations of existing APIs).
