  • Tom Coates, Native to a Web of Data (Tom successfully presented a version of this at NMM last summer)
  • Matt Biddulph, Designing Data for Reuse (Matt presented with Tom - see above)
  • NMM internal presentation (given at request of our Deputy Director - contains some over-simplifications etc but seemed to get the point across)
  • BBC Backstage - an excellent example of how APIs should be 'easy to find', documented 'enough', and be surrounded by example prototypes and ideas for using them.
  • Last.fm widgets boost user numbers: "Last.fm has around 21 million users on the site every month, but estimates that a further 19 million people use its services indirectly through applications and widgets on third-party sites."
  • Digital Image Resources on the Deep Web a US focussed article linking to collections of images
  • Well-written account of a BBC World Service mashup
  • An account of a website delivered exclusively by web services
  • Yale Law article arguing that the (US) Government get out of the publishing industry altogether and become purely a structured data provider via API and data feeds and allow the private sector to build innovative citizen-focussed services on top of that data.
  • A paper presented by [David] Ellis et al at MW2007: http://www.archimuse.com/mw2007/papers/ellis-d/ellis-d.html. A vision of SOA that perhaps puts more emphasis that we have been doing on how vendors might be involved, and none the worse for that! In depth consideration of the history of APIs (not just webby ones) and the technical challenges, plus a couple of examples of APIish stuff that Think Design have worked on.
