"Microsoft is going to offer new MSN APIs which will allow developers to access MSN Search, VirtualEarth, Messenger and MapPoint programatically and build their own applications around them. This is great! The new WWW is all about open APIs. Actually, Messenger APIs were available earlier as well. But only the most basic UI automation API was made available freely. The more useful API functions required use of a key from Microsoft which, from what I can make out, was almost impossible to get. I used these APIs quite a bit while I was with Microsoft. I hope the new APIs are not going to be just these old APIs repackaged differently."
