Meerkat, the mobile live streaming services that shot to fame at this year's SXSW conference, has unveiled a public API that developers can use to build their own experiences around some of the popular app's functionality.

Though SXSW ended a couple of weeks ago, an event put on by Polpeo, a social management service, is still on my mind. They hosted a clinic that simulated brand crisis – a firm’s CEO is caught getting drunk, obnoxiously hitting on women, and doing drugs in a bar.
