Provide lots of RSS before even thinking about an API.

Nice mashup of slideshare data. Interestingly, the mashup was done using RSS feeds, not their API. I’ve had similar experiences with mefeedia: make RSS available and people start to make mashups. The RSS feeds get loads of usage. The API often doesn’t.
