Plazes releases API

Felix Petersen:

"To use the API, please drop us a short mail and we will provide you with a developer key and the documentation. Note, that Plazes APIs are for non-commercial use only."

What’s the point of using a web API if you can’t make money with it? Isn’t this the best way to guarantee you’re not going to have much traction? I don’t get it. There’s more to web application integration than toying with gizmos in the margin of your blog.

  1. Fair enough Mark, but it just goes to show that launching an API before you even have a business model (for the API and for the human-facing site) is putting the horse before the cart, or at least asking for a big leap of faith from third-party developers.
