There is no better strategic move for TheBrain than to implement an API. There are over ONE THOUSAND feature requests for TheBrain on uservoice. Now look at the TEN THOUSAND firefox add-ons, most of which were contributed by a single user needing a single feature.
THE API NEEDS TO BE PRIORITY #1 because it would SIMULTANEOUSLY ADDRESS MORE THAN HALF OF THE 1000 OUTSTANDING FEATURE REQUESTS. As soon as a plugin API exists, the community's most-desired features will be developed by the community, while TheBrain can focus 100% on improving the base functionality (such as structured metadata).
Transforming TheBrain from an APPLICATION into a PLATFORM will exponentially increase its functionality, mindshare, and ultimately market reach. The more addons, the more users. The more users, the more addons. Do it now!
