    Touch Local in the UK have just released the first iteration of their api: http://www.touchlocal.com/developers
    It’s already being used for interesting stuff like a local search twitter mashup:

    Thanks for sharing your insights Andrew. Indeed, API’s are the glue of the internet. I’d be curious to see how many implementations and users the locally oriented API publishers currently draw; and how rapid the trend is moving For years, businesses like Local.com have made their living on it; both in consuming ad streams and publishing combined courtesy and sponsored results.

    The evolution of structured local information mashed-up a dozen different ways in the social eco-sphere will probably continue to yield a lot more fragmentation in local. I suspect, however, that as our devices become more omni-present and capable, that a few, game-changing leaders will emerge.

    Fascinating to witness this evolution…

    Yes thanks for sharing Andrew. Many thanks. It looks like I’ll have a new project on the go in the near future involving local search thanks to you. I truly never thought there were APIs and applications out there regarding local search. Awesome article.
