NPR Wants Suggestions for Their Next API Version

Andres Ferrate, August 19th, 2008

Last month we welcomed the launch of the NPR API from National Public Radio (NPR), an internationally acclaimed media production and distribution non-profit best known for a wide array of non-commercial radio programs.

Since its initial release, NPR has highlighted several new widgets and mashups developed with its API (our NPR API profile). And now the NPR API team is publicly soliciting suggestions for the next version of the RESTful API. Take a look at the NPR API overview and reference, and then chime in with your own suggestions on the NPR blog.

As we mentioned in our earlier post, we are starting to see media mashup opportunities emerge as traditional media properties such as NPR and the New York Times open up APIs. We are curious to see which other media properties follow suit in the near future.
