APIs are transforming the web economy and forcing changes in Web business models. Darwin's imperative - adapt or perish - has never been more apt. Much like the changes from direct to indirect channels in 20th century business, APIs represent an indirect channel to customers, led by developers and applications. Learn about successful adaptations to this environment and how to help others understand the API imperative.

  • Sam, great presentation. I particularly like slide 133 - 'developers now sit between you and your customers, they are like the retail store in the value chain.' I am really excited by the rapid innovation occurring through the use of APIs. This presentation frames APIs in a way that will be useful when speaking to those who are yet to see the importance of APIs.

  • Based on further questions and feedback on this presentation, I collaborated with Michael Hart and Dan Jacobson of Netflix to build a practical companion to the Darwin's Finches deck. You can find it here: http://www.slideshare.net/samramji/punctuated-equilibrium-celestial-navigation-and-ap-is

  • “But it’s not enough to just have one. Everyone has or will have one, just like everyone had a website. So this is the new competitive landscape. And developers are your new indirect channel. You need to address, motivate, and sustain your indirect channel. The companies that thrive in THIS transition will write the rules for everyone else.”
