APIs and Open Source
In the open source model the software development is decentralized. Anyone can modify the software, independent of where they live or who they work for. The only centralized functions tend to be tracking changes to the software, enabling developers via collaboration tools and deciding which changes make it into the official version of the software. The benefit for customers is that they can add their own features and fixes. Software developed in this fashion tends to be more agile and responsive.
APIs have been an indispensable software development tool for decades. Making them open and applying them to web sites extends their usefulness for software developers. But their biggest impact I believe will be on business development. Just like open source software makes it possible for software development to happen in a decentralized and more self-serve fashion, open APIs enable the same to happen for business development.
