History Of APIs: NOAA APIs Have Been RESTful For Over 20 Years

This post is a comment that was left on my Low Hanging Fruit For API Discovery In The Federal Government post, showcasing some of the government API work I am doing. I get a lot of people who email me telling me that what I'm saying is nothing new, they've been doing APIs since 1492! ;-) Many of them are pretty hostile to the new API movement, but I love this comment from Bob Simons from NOAA, which is the exact opposite of many of the comments I receive.
