Taking the Post to New Heights

I love the Washington Post, it’s a fantastic newspaper. It’s definitive on so many issues that make it an awful lot of fun to read, simply because you don’t just learn “the news” but also what’s going on behind the news. Take a look, now, at The Post Remix (or mashingtonpost.com as they call it), which is a blog on what people are doing with Post content, as well as to talk about Post APIs that are on their way toward public consumption. I love that some papers are opening up their content to be used with APIs. The first entry has a couple of cool pieces that use WaPo API content:

Ripped from the Headlines, a news quiz built each day from the Post’s online edition, and a geographic representation of stories, split by continent.

It would be awesome to see a Google or Yahoo Maps mashup with WaPo stories…who’s up for a challenge?

I live and work in the District of Columbia. I write at We Love DC, a blog I helped start, I work at Technolutionary, a company I helped start, and I’m happy doing both. I enjoy watching baseball, cooking, and gardening. I grow a mean pepper, keep a clean scorebook, and wash the dishes when I’m done. Read Why I Love DC.
