Sharing technology for the public good

"Mike Reich, president of Seabourne consulting, wrote on his blog on Dec. 22 that his company helped to create MyFCC. He said the new platform was relatively inexpensive to create because it leverages the open-source content available at the main Web portal FCC.gov “Because we were able to leverage the FCC.gov content through the API, the time and cost to develop MyFCC were radically lower than alternative approaches. This is a great example of how a Web API Platform architecture can help reduce development cost while supporting cutting-edge applications,” Reich wrote."

Great example of FCC “eating its own dogfood” — consuming its own APIs for the new My.FCC.gov.
