First look at Pownce's API
Tuesday, October 30, 2007 by Dave Winer.
A twit last night from Scoble points to a page of docs on a new API for Pownce. Of course I want to check it out, since Pownce is roughly comparable to Twitter, which I use every day, and there is some functionality I'd like to see in the Twitter API. If that functionality is present in Pownce's API, it seems more likely that it will show up eventually in Twitter's.
First, the API is maybe 1/3 complete. If you scroll to the end of the page you'll see a list of areas that haven't yet been covered. The ability to post and read friends-only notes are very important, you can't implement a client without those interfaces.
1. Get the most recent 10 public notes.
2. Get the most recent 10 public notes from Veronica Belmont.
3. Get my public profile.
