Doesn't API mean "Application Programming Interface", not "Advanced Programming Interface"?

Zach starts off the video about JSON by describing API as the latter. I think that's incorrect. http://teamtreehouse.com/library/how-to-build-a-wordpress-plugin/connecting-wordpress-plugins-with-3rd-party-apis/json-as-an-api

it looks like it started out with "advanced" but is now more commonly known as "application" some people can't let go of the past. ;-)

I'll be darned, I never knew that. I've known it as "application" for at least a few decades.

yes it does.....
