Update zu Web Mash-ups

Found this post by the guy who was interviewed by the folks of Business Week, noted in my post of late and adding to this other post

notice that he adds that

the only issue that wasn’t addressed (based on the audience of BusinessWeek) was the ramifications of opening up your data as a business move (especially for startups) [… mind …] the positive and negative aspects of opening an API as a business move.

Well put, implications are complex, not only when thinking of market growth, speed, (key/innovating/lead/…) user acceptance, signalling to the competition etc. … think e.g. of the opportunity to grow a business ecosystem just by opening the API and inviting others to contribute … business model innovation issues galore!
