Published on

Our world is based on trust. Trust between humans , trust between companies, trust for the system. It is only because of this trust that we invest for the future and we build things.
It is the same for internet and APIs. I explain here how trust will enable the web-as-a-platform and I point whate are the threats today on the API economy.
I aslo propose a criteria system in an API rating agency that i'm building.
