I’ve written in the past about the importance of APIs in today’s “web application” world. Chris Law – an early employee of Tribe – has just created a Wiki that is a directory of the publicly available API / web services. There is a corresponding blog to help report updates and changes. Many of the expected APIs are already listed, but there are some good ones that are off the beaten path such as the Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Pathway (cPath) Database and NOAA’s National Weather Service.
If you’ve got an API, or know of one, contribute to the Wiki.
