Internally, we have been discussing some ideas around a BuySellAds API. Personally, I think it’s a good idea – and I’m sure some people would call it a “no-brainer” and say do it. As with anything useful, it’s always easier said than done. We’re not at a shortage of good ideas and have at least two dozen others brewing about.
Like any normal business, before we commit to projects we like to dig a little deeper. Estimating their potential impact on user happiness, retention, the bottom line, etc. help us prioritize.
So, I thought I would give BSA users & spectators a chance to chime in on what they would like to see built on top of a BSA API. What products or services would you like to see built on top of a BSA API? What would you use it for? I suspect we’ll get plenty of “BSA iPhone App” answers, which is fine, but I’m curious to see if there are some outside-of-the-box uses out there that will surprise us and push us over the edge on this project. If you would rather not post publicly here in the comments, feel free to email your idea to me personally at firstname.lastname@example.org.
