John Musser, June 21st, 2009

This past week 27 new mashups were add to our mashup directory and 45 different APIs were used to build them (certainly the most number of APIs we’ve seen used in a single week). Some of the newer or less frequently seen APIs include Amazon Fulfillment Web Service, Amazon Queue Service, Best Buy Remix, Billboard, New York Times Movie Reviews, ViaMichelin. The most frequently used types of APIs were Mapping (7 APIs, 18 mashups), Search (5 APIs, 8 mashups), and Video (4 APIs, 8 mashups) and the most often used APIs this week are Flickr, Google Maps, and YouTube.
