The Web 2.0 APIs
Scott Hanselman has a great enumeration of the best Web 2.0 APIs (ya I know, Web 2.0 is so yesterday); Flickr, Digg, Facebook, Windows Live, YouTube, GData, MetaWeblogAPI, Twitter. He also points to a bunch of wrappers for the APIs. Link via Peter Dawson.

SpringWidgets does Podcast

I just realized that SpringWidgets also does podcast. I simply injected my sports talkcast into their RSS widget and all the magic happened. Here's a sample.

NewsGator Widgets

Jeff Nolan reminded me that NewsGator has their own widget framework. You have to sign-up and agree to terms of service, which might be too much to expect from Joe Randy, but NewsGator's has a great reputation in the RSS enterprise market and this might be the solution for a larger company (like NBC).

SpringWidgets RSS

I've been testing a few RSS widgets. The vast majority of which are completely broken. I eventually landed on SpringWidgets, which is a division of Fox and associated with MySpace (I think!). This widget seemed very customizable and worked like a charm. SpringWidgets also has a bunch of other widgets that seem pretty cool and actually work.

Digg only Speaks PHP

Today, I put some effort into getting Digg to working with my MetaWeblogAPI implementations. I and others have submitted bug reports before, but Digg seems unconcerned with fixing their absolutely ridiculous implementation. I tried to tweak my own implementation to compensate for bugs at Digg, but eventually gave up. Here are the highlights of my day.

Very frustrating!

Sorry and Enjoy

Sorry for the emptiness of this blog of late. I've been working extremely hard on a new website. In the meanwhile, enjoy a video about getting your X back using facebook. Very creative!

If you can't see the video, then go here.
