The game has changed for media organizations over the last year, increasingly moving more towards mobile and distribution strategies. To increase distribution opportunities, media organizations like NPR, The New York Times, CBS and others have released Open APIs (NPR’s API release was announced at OSCON 2008). In this session, we will discuss what these media organizations are offering in their APIs as well as how they are being used by their audiences.
