In late April, +Samuel Goto (Schema.org #actions  spec co-lead) hosted +Mike Amundsen  at the Googleplex. Mike is the co-author of "RESTful Web APIs" (O'Reilly, http://goo.gl/PhKpgV) and he gave a tech talk entitled "REST, Hypermedia, and the Semantic Gap: Why "RMM Level-3 REST" is not enough". If you are interested in REST and API design, check out the video recording, I think you'll enjoy it. 
Some of the concepts (affordances, shared vocabularies, hypermedia) Mike explained in his talk are integral to Schema.org #actions  design and today a Google Search feature called "Sitelinks Search Box" was updated to take advantage of machine-readable API descriptions. In fact, you have the power of #RFC6570  at your disposal so you can totally geek out on that one :) 

You can read about the new feature in the official +Google Webmasters blog post: http://googlewebmastercentral.blogspot.com/2014/09/improved-sitelinks-search-box.html and find the documentation here: https://developers.google.com/webmasters/richsnippets/sitelinkssearch

An example API description supported by Google Search is expressed in JSON-LD like this:

<script type="application/ld+json">
{
   "@context":"http://schema.org",
   "@type":"WebSite",
   "url": "https://www.example-petstore.com/",
   "potentialAction": {
     "@type":"SearchAction",
     "target": "https://host.example-petstore.com/search?q={search_term}",
     "query-input": "required name=search_term"
   }
}
</script>

You can read more about Schema.org actions at http://schema.org/docs/actions.html.

For a good discussion of the feature check out +Pierre Far's post here: https://plus.google.com/+PierreFar/posts/YytRv3nJ7nr

Last but not least, we have also featured the SearchAction in our #iobyte  with +Shawn Simister, you can watch the video here: Build a Small Knowledge Graph Part 3 of 3: Activating Graph Data With Actions.
