Tangler, an online network of discussion forums, recently announced their new API. The Tangler service takes traditional discussion forums to a new level, by allowing anyone to easily set up a discussion forum that can grow to include hundreds of topics and thousands of users.

Be sure to check out the complete API documentation as well as Tangler Developer’s Forum (which, of course, uses Tangler). Also note that Tangler supports RSS feeds for its discussion forums, so it’s possible to subscribe to discussion threads as well without use of the API.
On a similar note, see the the Webride API, which allows users to embed and start discussions on a variety of web pages.
