BBC makes it content available to developers free of charge


This is an interesting move by the BBC.  It is opening up its content and providing APIs free-of-charge to enable developers to create non-commercial applications.



“backstage.bbc.co.uk attempts to encourage and support those who have provided most of the innovation on the internet - the passionate, highly-skilled & public-spirited developers and designers many of whom volunteer their time and effort.”



There are a bunch of prototypes already under development including various collaborative applications based around wikis, collaborative book-marking etc.
