Really good coverage of a panel discussion at SXSW with Werner Vogels (CTO of Amazon) and Khris Loux (CEO of Echo).

 

Khris Loux argued that a truly open API needs 3 key characteristics:


"1. Programmatic, self-service access: no need to talk to someone or to negotiate to grab access

2. Remote access appears local: the consumer of the resource does not care about the where that resource is, or how its created. "It could be hamsters on a wheel, as long as they get what they need."

3. Instant on, with the ability to scale as needed."

 

He also depicted a vision -- which is a bit far off (yet) but still worth pondering about:

"The end result, ... could be a fundamental reworking of the entire global economy around the notion of Web services: The whole idea of the corporation would go away, instead focusing on building core services, slapping an API on it, and selling that service -- including to their competitors."

 

Final statement:

"there's still work to do on the *trust* issue before APIs really do take over the world."
