I am the ghost of groovymother.com. Woooooo!

It only exists in an attempt to prevent linkrot. No new content will be added to this site, and links and images are liable to be broken. Check out begbie.com to find where I'm posting stuff these days.

REST Request

Another handy REST post. The API I’m building at work currently only uses GET & POST, this helps explain that it’s still “RESTful”

Fielding Has a Posse

Fielding Has a Posse

New laptop sticker, swiped from Citizen Space. Seems appropriate since my role at Current is making things RESTful. (BTW, if anyone wants a Current TV sticker, ping me)

Your bank has a REST API now (shhh! -- don't tell them)

Wesabe have created an open API to allow folks to hack on their bank account data. I foresee some stonking visualization work coming out of this that will put Quicken, Microsoft Money, etc to shame.

Spec for a forthcoming book from Leonard Richardson and Sam Ruby. I look forward to finding out how to raise my web service designs above the level of “HTTP+POX”.

API - Lucene Web Service

Cool stuff (in a gloriously uncool way). A servlet to handle remote Lucene queries which is based on Atom-Pub, XOXO and OpenSearch. Hooray for well-defined standards which will speed up coding.
