Curated Links News

These are the news items that I have curated during the monitoring of the API space that have some relevance to the Links conversation and I wanted to include in my research. I am using all of these links to better understand how the space is defining not just their APIs, but their schema, and other moving parts of their API operations.

Links Companies and Organizations

These are the organizations I come across in my research who are doing interesting things in the API space. They could be companies, institutions, government agencies, or any other type of organizational entity. My goal is to aggregate so I can stay in tune with what they are up to and how it impacts the API space.

Pinboard

Pinboard is a bookmarking website for introverted people in a hurry. The focus of the site is less on socializing, and more on speed and utility. Pinboard tries to offer useful features without getting in your way. My highest priority is keeping your data safe over the long term.

Google Safe Browsing

The Safe Browsing APIs (v4) let your client applications check URLs against Googles constantly updated lists of unsafe web resources. Examples of unsafe web resources are social engineering sites (phishing and deceptive sites) and sites that host malware or unwanted software. Any URL found on a Safe Browsing list is considered unsafe.

Google URL Shortener

The Google URL Shortener at goo.gl is a service that takes long URLs and squeezes them into fewer characters to make a link that is easier to share, tweet, or email to friends. Users can create these short links through the web interface at goo.gl, or they can programatically create them through the URL Shortener API. With the URL Shortener API you can write applications that use simple HTTP methods to create, inspect, and manage goo.gl short links from desktop, mobile, or web.

Accelerated Mobile Pages URL

AMP is a way to build web pages for static content that render fast. AMP in action consists of three different parts: AMP HTML is HTML with some restrictions for reliable performance and some extensions for building rich content beyond basic HTML. The AMP JS library ensures the fast rendering of AMP HTML pages. The Google AMP Cache can be used to serve cached AMP HTML pages.

MetaCert

Data loss detection and prevention for companies that use Team Collaboration services. Protection against malicious and unwanted URLs.

Hootsuite

Enhance your social media management with Hootsuite, the leading social media dashboard. Manage multiple networks and profiles and measure your campaign results.

Readability

Readability is a free/pay reading platform that delivers a great reading experience and provides a model where your reading activity can directly compensate publishers and writers. Readability started off as a simple, Javascript-based reading tool that turned any web page into a customizable reading view. It was released by Arc90 (as an Arc90 Lab experiment), a New York City based design and technology shop, back in early 2009.

historio.us

Finally, bookmarking you can love--historious saves you time by helping you find webpages you saw before. Bookmark sites with a single click, then find them again by searching for any word in the content of the page. Bookmark (we call it historify) your favorite sites with just a single click. No categories to select or forms to fill out, and it works on all browsers! Search your historified sites using a simple search box. Dont wade through lists of obscure titles, enter a few keywords you remember from the content of the page and youre off!

Click Meter

ClickMeter was founded in 2012 as a byproduct of an experienced web-marketing agency. The ClickMeter System was initially a web tool created to address the needs of our agency to precisely count and track the web-marketing actions we performed for our customers. The system evolved rapidly, and emerged as one of the most widely used software solutions in our agency to collect, analyze, and share data for and with our customers. After few years after the development of the first ClickMeter system, we decided to go live with a service that can be useful to everyone involved in web-marketing activities.
