Marketplace API Round-up

class="postimage"> src="http://blog.activeden.net/wp-content/uploads/code1.jpg" alt=""/>

What’s an “API”? A Pink Igloo? A Pig Itching? Not quite.

The Marketplace’s target="_blank" href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Application_programming_interface">Application Programming Interface (API) allows the development of applications with access to a range of data from all the marketplaces such as the most popular and latest files. More sensitive data such as your account balance, recent sales, and monthly statements can also be accessed securely using your individual API key!

So what? I’m a designer – why should I be interested in geeky code interface stuff? Well, using the API you can develop apps/sites for your mobile, your desktop, or even your blog. Did I mention you can even design and style your applications however you want? Now that’s pretty cool, right?!

up to over the course of the last year.

Some designers and bloggers seem to have a habit of fading out of the public eye, and enjoying a very short-lived popularity. You’ve been regarded as an important figure in the design community for some time now. Could you share some insight into how you maintain your activity and ‘personal brand’ if you will, within the design community?
