Flickr services

The Flickr.com is yet another photo service site. But the distinguishing feature (at least for me) is that it provides an API with array of supported access methods (REST, SOAP, XML-RPC) to get a full programming control of your account's data and settings. Quite impressive, really. I can't agree more with Jeremy Zawodny: [Flickr is a] next generation web services.

If we add to this Google, Blogger, A9 and others it surely looks like a trend. And you (myself in the first place) don't want to miss the idea while launching your next web-based service. Sure, this kind of access is helpful only for a fraction of web-based services out there, but it could gain them a lot.
