MindTouch Deki, a Programmable Wiki

The Bungee LineOverview
MindTouch’s Steve Bjorg joins us to tell us all about their wiki platform called “Deki.” MindTouch is rapidly growing Deki’s install base, largely on its slick user interface. But there’s something hidden under the all the UI slickness: under the hood, Deki supports a comprehensive web API. In fact, the PHP user interface fully delegates all operations over web-service calls to the API. In other words, web-dev geeks like us can safely customize or extend the UI without risk of interfering with Deki’s business logic, such as page permissions or revisions. Coooool! Oh, and did we mention that it’s Free Software?

Jon Aizen of Dapper.net

The Bungee LineOverview
Jon Aizen joins Alex and Ted to explain how Dapper.net provides a no-fee tool for making almost any structured web site data accessible via a REST API. In a past life, Jon was involved in creating The Internet Archive. Jon also helps the Bungee Line introduce romantic intrigue into the podcast.
Punditry Alert! At the end of this show, Ted and Alex speculate a bit about Android, Google’s open source mobile device platform, the Apache License, and whether Robert Love is involved. Please consider this as another demonstration of Ted’s idiocy, brought to you by the Bungee Line.
