MSN becomes a platform

Microsoft's MSN division will reportedly be opening up a number of API's in its bid to become the Place in cyberspace.While details have not been divulged yet, some facts about the matter can be found on Dare Obasanjo’s blog.

If this is true, and there isn’t any doubt that the APIs would be opened up, I wonder what GOOG must think of this development.

While Google may have the eyeballs now, the potential to monetize the MSN APIs is a great magnet for a lot of companies/developers out there.

Dare Obasanjo developed the RSS Bandit feed aggregator.
