Best New Mashups: Get At Hidden Data

Adam DuVander, April 1st, 2010

FacebookMost mashups rely on data from other APIs to do their thing. That’s part of the power of open APIs. There’s a special class of mashup that we’re featuring today. These extract additional data, hidden from casual view. Now you can find out where that short URL points, the lyrics (and more) for any song, or the spot where you can meet in the middle–as long as you can spell rendezvous.
