Description: AOL announced at The Ajax Experience in Boston that it is launching a development site with a variety of open APIs for its social networking, video, photo and mapping applications. "We're building…to be a great place to find more information on our platform, to get some code," William Morris, AOL's vice president of products and technology, said during the show. The idea is to allow developers to embed AOL features into their own sites, whether they are customer-facing applications or enterprise apps.

APIs are available for AIM (AOL Instant Messenger), AIM Pages, AOL Music Now, AOL Video Search, AOL Pictures and MapQuest. The development site also includes a Greenhouse, where the company is "incubating" prototypes, as well as a section devoted to features that are in beta.
