    I’ll be curious to see how this plays out. From the outside, the MySpace website appears to be so amazingly poorly engineered that I’ll be shocked if they do a good job with an API (and I’ll wonder why they didn’t devote some of their resources to fixing the site first). Of course, the market has proven again and again that a product doesn’t have to be technically good to be successful. If it did, MySpace would have failed long ago…

  2. It is good to know that Myspace is getting social with developers. It will definitely allow many third party applications to reach millions of new users on Myspace. It would be intersting to see the impact on monetization using such applications.
