Run! Episode 6 – Open APIs, Walled Gardens and Skeumorphism

We have a great show this week with guest George Reese, CTO at enStratus and author of the O’Reilly book on Application Programming Interfaces (APIs).

Here are some of the show quotables –
  • Data-in-place upgrade to Windows 8 is excellent — @sthulin
  • “It was a necessity as the mother of invention type thing” ~ @georgereese when asked about the start of enStratus
  • Skeumorphism: a UIX perspective Roger read up on here.
We had a few dropped calls from our midwesterner and a few odd noises from the ranks. The heart of the matter – what the hell is an API and why should I care – still shines through.
