After all the attention from ColorLovers this weekend, and a recent read of a Tim O’Reilly article, I found myself thinking about how I could participate in the “open web”. I’m already looking at opening an API (initially just GET) so that people can use the data from Hexday outside of it’s confines, but I should also really try to also participate in other open data sharing if such things exist. So I was very excited to find that colourLovers has an API, and Kuler has one that returns RSS.
I’m going to be thinking very hard about how I would integrate with them, yet keep the identity of hexday very separate, whilst most importantly have it be beneficial to users of hexday. I’ll maybe post some ideas before I go ahead with anything. If anyone can think of other places to “mashup” with, I’d love to hear.
