Google the buggers :) to launch API for all

Google are about to launch an opensocial API service that will link to many social networks. API (application programming interface) is a source code interface that allows developers to more easily develop applications to work together. So far pretty much every big site that has an API has it's own one with it's own standards.

Anyway i call them Google buggers cause i thought of that APIAPI idea about a year ago but it's kind of a mammoth task to take on so well i guess we'll have to be a host for them and welcome a more structured webscape.

http://code.google.com/apis/opensocial (meant to be here but it's down at the time of this post)

For the non geeks it's kind of a big deal to have a common way to manage information across multiple sites.
