John Musser, September 28th, 2006

AskimetNew APIs continue to arrive at a rate of 1 every 2 days here in the ProgrammableWeb API listings. Now up to a total of 281. Here’s a rundown of some of the newer entries over the past two weeks.

  • Akismet API: Automatic Kismet, or Akismet, is a collaborative effort to track and prevent blog comment and trackback spam. They offer a hosted service, an API and also this interesting Spam Zeitgeist stats page with 218,684,318 spams caught so far and 93% of all comments they see are spam.
  • Freshbooks API: Nice online invoicing and time tracking service with a web services API. Formerly named 2ndSite, headquartered in Toronto.
  • Microsoft adCenter API: While this new service has an API it is currently only offered to a limited number of partners. Some details are available via the links from the profile page here.
  • Commission Junction API: “CJ”, the well-established online advertising company (est. 1999) with one of the largest affiliate networks, now offers an API. For more see their recent press release.

Both comments and pings are currently closed.
