Web services are poised to revolutionize the way content sites get their goods to the folks who want them. Businessweek writes,this is a major change –It was thought of Web services as something that could only make business transactions easier. Last year just 4% of Web-services-related spending went to information dissemination and retrieval, Now the biggest forces behind informational Web services are information sites themselves. Hundreds such as Technorati have begun publishing their application program interfaces (API). They're letting the programmers from other sites know the easiest way to link up their news feeds. The result is a community of interrelated programmers and Web sites. Since Flickr, a Web site through which people can share photos, made its APIs available last summer, more than 600 developers from other sites have made use of them, says co-founder Stewart Butterfield.
