I know that some of my readers are URI experts, URL ninjas, and masters of the domain, but most of my readers are not, and I wanted to share some of the 100K view of what I see across the world of domains, in the API space. I'm going through my API Stack over the last couple days (continuing ...

I'm liking the new Dwolla's new API docs that they just launched. They are using an open source API documentation framework called Slate, developed by Tripit, for their own API documentation. I enjoy seeing the different directions that providers take with their API docs.

The Business and Politics of APIs
Introduction
I am the API Evangelist.  Not in the sense that I’m evangelizing a single API to you--In the sense that APIs are important for everyone to be aware of.  I’m paying attention to not just the technical, but the business and politics of the web API movement.  I share my insights by blogging on the business of APIs at apievangelist.com, politics of APIs at apivoice.com and you can find more information about me at kinlane.com.
