comment Should there be a discovery API?
I can't edit posts yet, so here is the correct link for StackAuth 1.0 API: stackauth.com/1.0/help

comment What's the best way to mashup a social network with StackOverflow?
@porkeypop the path should look like this example: stackauth.com/0.8/users/6c21dcdc-0b55-440f-a378-9871074a5350/… I added the type=json to make it return pretty-print instead of standard json.

comment Can't get JSON representation for the help
Looks like I spoke too soon... the api.stackoverflow.com/0.8/help/method?method=stats version of the help page does use CSS and ID tags and should be much easier to parse.

Sweet! Just what I needed. I suggest that the jsonp parameter be added to the global parameters list here stackapps.com/questions/1/api-documentation-and-help

comment How to use the stackapps API from JavaScript with XMLHttpRequest or XDomainRequest?
That will work. I tried checking the docs but it wasn't listed anywhere. I also tried searching for jsonp but I guess I missed the response in that question. Thanks!

comment Can't get JSON representation for the help
I could see a use for consuming the help file in a JSON format when creating a library or wrapper. Rather than re-type or copy and paste all the method descriptions you could pull down the help page and use code templates to prototype the method bodies with full documentation. I was planning on doing this by parsing the current HTML help pages, but while the HTML is very clean it does not use element IDs or CSS classes to annotate the methods very well so it is not very easy to scrape content from those pages.
