Kiva, the distributed micro loan platform, just released a new API, and social network analysis sprang up

kiva apiVia Ajaxian I come to know that Kiva, the distributed micro loan platform, has just released a new developer API that gives third parties access to create innovative applications on top of the platform! I’m investing 100 dollars in Kiva since some years (my Kiva lender profile) and I found it a neat idea! If you don’t know what Kiva is, check this video about Kiva, there is also a Kiva Facebook application.

And the amazing guys behind “How We Know Us – Investigating, discussing, and measuring social capital” already started poking at the data available with the hypothesis network analysis will be able to help predict rates of return! Check

Go play with the new KIVA API!
