How Kraft could use a brand API

If you've been following the last few posts, you're probably aware that I spoke at an event about brands and APIs last week. It was called "The Evolution of Distribution" and I spoke about the article I wrote for Mashable called "Why every brand needs an open API for developers." My presentation outlined how even a brand like Kraft might find unexpected value from releasing their own APIs.

I just added a few notes to my slides and posted them on the Traction SlideShare channel. I've also listed some other relevant links below if you're interested in the topic of brand APIs.
