MIT App Inventor
"Creating an App Inventor App begins in your browser where you design how the app will look. Then, like fitting together puzzle pieces, you set your app’s behavior. All the while, through a live connection between your computer and your phone, your app appears on your phone."

Half-formed thoughts about Twitter, social silos, web APIs, and mashups « blog.lmorchard.com
"What’s left behind are things that aren’t owned by a single entity. RSS, rssCloud, Atom, AtomPub, PubSubHubbub, JSON Activity Streams, Salmon, WebFinger, OStatus, etc and so forth. We could talk to each other with these things, and make beautiful mashups.

But, a lot of us have been distracted by shiny corporate APIs, building value for others and sometimes making a little for ourselves. Why bother writing a web spider chasing microformatted relationships to build a social graph, when we could make a single HTTP GET and have a JSON-formatted friends list tossed back – and thus, get on with the real thing we wanted to do with that list?"
