Guardian release new API
http://www.guardian.co.uk/media/2009/mar/10/guardian-open-platform

Gives a nice sizeable shout out towards the project.

OSM are partners in the launch with Stamen, apparently.
"Other partners for the launch of the service include web design firm
Stamen and OpenStreetMap, a free, open alternative to commercial map
data services. Stamen and OpenStreetMap developed a service that they
hope will encourage Guardian readers to "geo-tag" the newspaper's
content, positioning every article, video and picture on a map so
users can find news, commentary, video and other content related to
their area."

Anyone seen anything more regarding this?

Tim
