Silk Road is Live Search's new set of search APIs (version 2.0 beta) and services for developers. With Silk Road, you can build applications without restrictions around presentation. Getting started is simple: decide what search content you want, choose from JSON, SOAP, or XML output, and then customize them according to your needs to build your own search application. All you need to get going is an AppID.

  • New SourceTypes
    1. Ads
    2. RelatedSearch
    3. Instant Answer

  • New Protocols
    1. JSON
    2. XML
    3. SOAP

  • Strong Typing
  • Developer portal

Thanks for posting this. Nathan went over this during the Search Engine Smackdown at PubCon - it was excellent. Now all we need is for Live to get more market share.
