The Basics of APIs

Scott Weingart twitted a nice [introduction to using APIs][] by Owen Stephens. It helped me to understand quite a bit what it was Kyle Felker did when he set up some PHP scripts to download citation information from JSTOR. (Unfortunately, JSTOR has since shutdown the API and isn’t saying much about what the future holds for it.)
