Could you provide a little more information? Are you thinking about an API to this portal or to the TradePub.com site? What sort of things are you thinking would be valuable to pull from our site and where what were you thinking of integrating it in to?
I think he means an API that would allow us to directly pull publication information. This would allow us to do things outside of what you offer with the current formats. I'm not sure what Vivek had in mind, but I'm sure people would have many ideas if you provided those basic tools to create things.
Thanks for your take on Vivek's comment. We are currently evaluating what parts of our internal API we are willing to expose as well as the pieces that need to be added to make it useful to third parties.
I expect our first cut will be something along the lines of a REST based XML feed that developers can start to run with.
