The UI is the API. Drew McLellan asks: can your Web site be your API? Let me ask a different question: why is your Web site not your API? Is there a technical reason for that, or are we just conditioned to think that UIs are pretty and APIs are “complex ugly beasts” the need a lot of SOAP?
Yes, UIs serve users first, developers second. But they’re both ways to access the data. And those developers build for users, which could be us, so why not make their job easier? If we put the same care and attention to APIs as we do with UIs, would we get better software out of that?
If PS3, XBox 360, and Wii were people you know. Good one, Andre.
