The White House “We the People” Petition Site Gets a New API, Third-Party Sites and Apps Can Soon Host Petitions
Does this mean more pointless petitions? Probably.
Since we're a geek culture site we tend to focus on the sillier "We the People" petitions like asking Obama to recreate The Incredibles, give each state its own Pokémon, or build a Death Star. We have a feeling we'll be seeing more of these, because the White House is opening up the site's API to let third-party outlets host petitions.
