Pinboard's Heroic and Lazy Stand Against IFTTT(blog.pinboard.in)

    I'm having a hard time grasping the change here, can someone clarify?

    It sounds to me like IFTTT used to do all the API work in-house: they'd write the code to, essentially, translate from one service's API to another service's API. But now they're switching to a model where each service needs to implement this new IFTTT API.

    Is that right?

    If yes, it's a remarkably radical shift in how they do business — now you'd need an IFTTIFTTT service that can now do the 'shim' work that IFTTT used to do!
