Reaches Goal For Wiser Earth API

Just about a month ago I returned from the NTEN NTC in San Francisco where I had the opportunity to talk with Peggy Duvette, Angus Parker of WiserEarth and Leif Utne of Zanby and organizing force behind Open Wiser. I then blogged about the OpenWiser fundraising drive to raise $10,000 to build an open API to WiserEarth’s database of information about organizations around the world working towards a more sustainable civilization.

CivicActions offered a matching donation to help reach the goal, and today Leif posted an update that the goal has been reached and work has already begun on the API. If you are a developer, join the WiserEarth API Developer group and learn how you can use the API.

Thanks to all who donated to the effort. Now lets unleash our creativity on ways to use the API!
