Hypermedia.

It’s a very general term to describe efforts being made in the API community to make better APIs. 

Here are some of my initial thoughts + resources for understanding:
Hypermedia is a way to create more reusable client code
Benefits of Hypermedia
One hardcoded entry point URL instead of many
Documentation, links, and actions are discoverable from API responses
This is a fantastic overview of the evolution of API design
API Craft Detroit this year had some good discussions (these usually included many who have created these specs, Steve Klabnik, Kevin Swiber, Mike Amundsen, etc.)

There are many ideas about specifications for media types:
HAL
Siren
Collection+JSON
JSON-LD 

As you can see, we’re only beginning to figure this stuff out

The past week, in preparation for the Soundprank show tonight, I’ve been listening to some smoother electro, and I figured I’d patch it up and share. It’s a great mix, good for work, staring up at the moon, or just hanging out. 
Clean Electro Mix Instructions:
Download this file, unzip it, then drag the Music folder into your iTunes. Then, in iTunes got to File->Library->Import Playlist, and import cleanelectro.xml:
