Jeff has been rolling out the APIs at Newscloud, 51 and counting with code samples, and documentation. Everything you need to remix your own community collaborative news “vertical” (in valleyspeak), Digg-a-like, or simply progressive news aggregator.
A whole pack of the crew from Anyday/Palm just shipped Helium, newest entry in the paid writers community space, built on a slick Rails backend. But really, get better stock photos if you want to give the “made of people” feel. (see Flickr: Creative Commons)
And Blaine has soft launched Jabber integration for Twitter. Also a stream oriented XML webservice. (did I just repeat myself?)

BarCamp NYC is next weekend, and with it the East Coast gets its inaugral un-conference. (FooCamp, BarCamp, and MindCamp all being West Coast affairs, and Amsterdam being spiritually closer to the West Coast then anywhere on the Atlantic Seaboard I’m thinking)
Registration is open, attendance is free, accomodation is urban camping.
Also if anyone has a suggestion for a talk for me to give, I’m coming up blank, I’ve handed out a number of excellent (IMHO) suggestions to others, but not feeling the inspiration personally.
