ProgrammableWeb“ProgrammableWeb” is a technical blog and website with lots of useful tips and pointers about Web 2.0 with a concentration in API’s and mashups. If you are a coder and want to earn some cash there are several programming competitions and contests listed in a recent post possibly worth $1,000’s of dollars to you. I’m simplifying it but don’t let the words API and mashups scare you away if your not a programmer. Mashups are just applications combining resources and the ProgrammableWeb blog points to lots of superb mashups that are beneficial and entertaining resources for everyone. Here are just a few that are mentioned: VGMap, phillycrime.org, Ning, toEat, start.com, Pervwatch and lots more. Along with the links are concise descriptions for each mashup or API. Here is one that would be great depending on how many people get involved with it: “Find Cheap Gas and more with tags - Update in Wiki style”. If you haven’t had your fill at the blog you can wander the rest of the web site too. I give 8.5 stars. Don’t let the buzzwords or new words scare you off. It’s like the word blogs it can be as simple as you want or you can dig in as deep as you want but there is something for everyone.
