"Twitter users are generating 90 million tweets per day. Between 8pm & 10pm local time in the US, 20% of all Internet traffic is driven by one company: Netflix.
Interestingly, most of the traffic for Netflix and Twitter does not come from the Web browser. Twitter has more than 70,000 registered applications running on devices of all shapes and sizes. Netflix streams content to the iPhone, Nintendo Wii, Playstation, iPad and many others.
All of this innovation is driven by devices - often mobile devices - accessing web APIs. Web APIs, Application Programming Interfaces, allow computers to talk directly with one another. It's how the Nintendo Wii talks to the Netflix server. It's how an iPhone App, like TweetDeck, talks to the Twitter server.
As we enter the golden age of web APIs, we have to ask: what does all this mean for one of our biggest mobile devices, the car?
In this ignite session, we'll explore what is possible when we imagine the automobile as a two ton web API client."
