Priority Guides: A Content-First Alternative to Wireframes · An A List Apart Article
“Once an interaction designer has created a wireframe, it’s hard for many (we’re not saying all) visual designers to think outside the boundaries set by that wireframe and challenge the ideas it contains. As a result, the final designs almost always resemble the wireframes. Their creativity impaired, the visual designers were essentially just coloring in the wireframes.”

Twitter API Changes Likely to Hobble Third-party Apps – Stuntbox
“Ironically, Twitter owes its initial success to third-party developers more than most products. Twitter launched during the pre-iPhone, pre-app Internet, and was nominally based on SMS. But the way enthusiastic early members interacted with it most was through desktop apps built by third parties. For years Twitter had none of its own. “Twitter was born during an era when having an API was seen as a virtue, and enabling third-party developers was a key to growth. They reaped the benefits of that—they even co-opted their brand from a desktop Mac application—becoming immensely popular along the way.”
